In line with our Sanctions Policy:
- Any individual may bring a good faith complaint to the Council about a member organization by submitting information indicating ethical misconduct.
- Council staff, and when relevant our Ethics Task Force, will consider and discuss accusations of unethical conduct submitted to the Council.
- Following a review of the reported misconduct, the Council may sanction the member organization, but will not sanction individual employees or directors.
