Ethics Complaints

Ethics Complaints

All IBA members, credential holders and volunteers must abide by our Code of Ethics and uphold the values of responsibility, respect, fairness and honesty.

Review the Code

If matters involving unethical behavior arise, IBA offers a formal ethics complaint process. All ethical cases are taken seriously and are investigated by the Ethics Review Committee (ERC) on behalf of the IBA Board of Directors. The ERC is authorized to resolve and end all ethics cases brought to the Organization, and to order disciplinary or remedial actions.

Complaints can be made against individuals only.

The Ethics Code applies only to IBA members, credential holders, credential applicants and volunteers, so only these individuals may be named in an ethics complaint. The Code does not apply to organizations.

File an Ethics Complaint

To file a formal complaint, complete the ethics complaint form, sign it with a handwritten signature, attach any supporting documents and mail it to IBA marked confidential.
