Enforcement and Communication of the IIAR Code of Ethics

IIAR urges compliance with its Code of Ethics by positively communicating the ideals of professional ethics and practice rather than through negative sanctions. However, members of IIAR who violate regulations affecting their professional activities may, upon recommendation of the IIAR Ethics Council, have their membership terminated by the IIAR Board of Directors following procedures in the institute’s bylaws.
