What is the Ethical Misconduct Process?

Before filing a formal complaint with CSI, we strongly recommend trying to resolve the issue by speaking directly with the FCSI® in question. Those who cannot come to a resolution should contact CSI at our special FCSI® complaints email address.

Complaint submissions should include:

  • Details of the alleged Code of Ethics violation
  • Sufficient background information/documentation to support the allegation
  • Name and contact details of the complainant

CSI does not recommend sharing confidential financial information through email. Allegations of violation of the FCSI® Code of Ethics are dealt with by the Designation Ethics Committee according to the Ethical Misconduct Process. If the Committee determines a violation occurred, a disciplinary sanction is recommended. The FCSI® may accept the recommended sanction or request a hearing.

Disciplinary sanctions could include the following:

  • A written reprimand from CSI and/or the Chair of the FCSI® Advisory Council.
  • Notifying the appropriate regulatory body for possible further investigation.
  • Recording the violation in the FCSI®’s record.
  • Requiring the FCSI® to complete a supplementary ethics or professional development course(s).
  • Requiring the FCSI® to complete additional industry contribution hours.
  • Suspending the FCSI®’s licence and use of the FCSI® Certification Mark (for a specific period, indefinitely with conditions for reinstatement, or permanently).
  • Notify the FCSI® holder’s employer and/or professional or designation granting organization of the violation
  • Imposing other measures deemed appropriate by the Designation Ethics Committee.
  • Publicizing the violation on the CSI website and/or elsewhere.
