Code of Ethics:
  Reporting Violations of this Code

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.

Notes:

  1. Failure by a member to report conduct within this paragraph is not of itself a violation of the Code.

  2. 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.
