Members of the IAIPSIG have an obligation to report to the President
of the IAIPSIG serious breaches of this Code by another member
that raise a substantial question as to the ability of that member
to perform the functions or fulfil the responsibilities of an IPSIG.
- Failure by a member to report conduct within this paragraph
is not of itself a violation of the Code.
- Reporting a breach of the Code by another member under this paragraph
may be contrary to paragraph 6 of the Code (Confidentiality). Where the
reporting would not involve communicating proprietary information or information
relating to the substance of an assignment (rather than exclusively to
the conduct of another member), the reporting member shall be deemed not
to have breached paragraph 6. Where the reporting would involve communicating
proprietary information or information relating to the substance of an
assignment, a member should obtain the consent of the owner or owners
of the information before providing it to the President. Where the circumstances,
in the reporting member's judgment, are exceptionally sensitive and the
conduct is particularly egregious, the member may provide the information
to the President without such consent.
