Code of Professional Conduct

Advocis Code of Professional Conduct (CPC)

The Advocis Code of Professional Conduct (CPC) sets out the principles that Advocis Members are expected to abide by in their business activities and when liaising between clients and suppliers of financial and insurance products or services.  Explanatory notes are available that provide a more in-depth explanation of each principle within the Advocis Code of Professional Conduct (CPC).

Request for Investigation (RFI) Standard Form

Any person may file a Request for Investigation (RFI) against an Advocis member. We must receive a written submission in order to initiate disciplinary procedures. Any person seeking to file a Request for Investigation may do so by completing the standard RFI form or submitting a formal letter outlining the issue.

Advocis/Institute Disciplinary Procedures

An important function for Advocis and The Institute is the self-disciplinary role needed to ensure that Advocis Members conduct their actions in accordance with the Code of Professional Conduct. Advocis and The Institute have written procedures to follow when a member's professional conduct is in question.

The Advocis/Institute Disciplinary Procedures are based on a peer review system, carried out by members of the Association. The Disciplinary Procedures are in place to provide a consistent and transparent process for determining the facts and imposing sanctions for conduct found to be unbecoming of the Advocis/Institute Code of Professional Conduct.
