Dissemination of complaints and allegations

In the event of a reprimand, suspension or expulsion as the result of a professional conduct investigation, the Institute will publish a report including the name of the individual or Registered Organisation involved and the details of the sanction decided, unless there are exceptional compassionate grounds for not doing so. The Institute may also make this information known to third parties by other means.

The Institute will normally arrange for a review of completed allegations approximately every two years by a lay person (who is not a member of the Institute). The outcome of the review is reported to the Board of Directors and a summary of the report will be published in The Archaeologist.
