Discipline Cases

Discipline decisions are made in complaint cases that are accepted by the registrar and enter the process defined in the bylaws. Once a complaint has concluded, we publish the decision in accordance with our policies. A decision may involve disciplinary action, alternative dispute resolution or dismissal of the allegations. Disciplinary actions arise from a settlement process and consent order or will be based on the decision of a hearing panel. These publications include as much detail as possible so that our members can learn from them and to serve as a public record of actions taken.

These decisions are organized in two sections based on whether disciplinary action was taken or not. They are listed by the date that the decision was made.

We publish our discipline cases in accordance to the following:

Should you have any questions regarding our publishing discipline case digests, please contact our registrar and director of act compliance.
