The CID Code of Conduct Committee exists to provide assurance to CID members and partners that the Code of Conduct is being implemented effectively, to consider matters of Code compliance and to ensure that complaints in relation to the Code of Conduct are examined promptly and fairly.
The main objectives of the CID Code of Conduct Committee are:
- To consider compliance issues and agree upon and implement the assessment, monitoring and review of compliance in relation to the Code of Conduct.
- To examine complaints (i.e., alleged breaches of the Code) that are received, mediate an outcome where relevant and make recommendations to the CID Board on an appropriate course of action. After initial assessment complaints may be referred to an independent body for further consideration and recommendation.
- To develop and adopt relevant policies regarding the implementation of the Code of Conduct. Information on adopted policies will be made available to all members and will be available on the CID website.
- To report on overall compliance to the AGM and support CID’s efforts to promote Code compliance to the wider public.
