International Ethics Standards
九游会登陆是国际伦理标准联盟(IESC)成员, 及所有九游会登陆成员承诺遵守 International Ethics Standards established by IESC.
IESC’s goal is to create a universal set of ethical principles for real estate and related professions. The International Ethics Standards 高水平的道德原则是否涵盖了房地产的广泛范围, apply to all countries, and are consistent with member organizations’ individual codes to help real estate organizations promote ethical business practices.
How the 九游会登陆 Ethics Process Works
许多协会都有道德规范, a study by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) found that only one-third fully enforce their codes. 九游会登陆 is committed to ethics as one of its core values and therefore strictly enforces its Codes, 自始至终为各方提供正当程序.
Violations of an 九游会登陆 Code are processed within a defined structure by an established peer review process that may result in disciplinary actions. There are three boards that independently perform specific duties in the administration of 九游会登陆’s ethics program:
Ethics Inquiry Board
The Inquiry Board performs initial review of all allegations of possible unethical or improper conduct that come to the attention of the Institute (in the form of a complaint), 确定是否有合理理由相信可能发生此类行为, 并在适当的情况下准备并将投诉提交听证. Because the Inquiry Board’s initial determination is based solely on the information provided in the complaint, 投诉文件的彻底性至关重要. The Inquiry Board may:
- Forward the complaint to hearing
- Open an investigation and request additional information from either the complainant or the respondent.
Ethics Hearing and Discipline Board
审讯委员会就道德操守调查委员会提交的事宜举行聆讯. 如果委员会发现违反《九游会登陆入口》和/或《九游会登陆入口》, they will determine the appropriate action to take and summarize and publish its decisions as it deems appropriate.
A member found in violation of an 九游会登陆 code may receive one of the following disciplines from the Hearing Board:
- 一封责难信，可以发表也可以不发表. 意见书不影响被投诉人的九游会登陆入口地位.
- Suspension of membership for a period of as little as one month and as much as three years – which is always published. The respondent loses all benefits of membership during the suspension period but must stay current with dues and fees. The respondent's status is automatically reactivated at the end of the suspension period provided all conditions are met.
- 终止九游会登陆入口地位-这总是公布. 答辩人五年后可重新申请成为九游会登陆入口, with the reapplication considered on its merits and under such policies as may then be in effect.
Ethics Appeal Board
The Appeal Board hears appeals to a decision by the Ethics Hearing and Discipline Board upon request. The Appeal Board may:
How to File an Ethics Complaint
九游会登陆是一个九游会登陆入口协会, 九游会登陆只对九游会登陆入口遵守九游会登陆的职业道德守则有管辖权. Issues involving miscommunications, business judgment, or human error are distinguished from definable unethical behavior and are generally not within the scope of the Codes. 每年有10到20起投诉. Typically, one-third to one-half are moved through the full ethics process – others are found to be contractual disputes or otherwise not issues that are covered by the Code of Professional Ethics. 帮助您确定某个问题是否可能违反九游会登陆的规范, review these interpretation.
