The newly published CABE Code of Professional Conduct sets out clear standards for CABE members to follow, and against which complaints will be measured.
The Code will come into force on 15th May 2019. Any complaint which relates to matters which take place after this date will be assessed against these new standards.
Whilst the content of the Guide may be taken into account in any disciplinary hearings, failure to follow every aspect does not necessarily indicate that a member has breached the standards set out in the Code.
The Guide to Ethical Professionalism will also come into force on 15th May 2019.
Complaints prior to 15 May 2019
Complaints prior to 15th May 2019 will be assessed against the old Rules of Professional Conduct.
