The public has access to a fair and responsive Complaint Process to address incompetent or unethical practice by registered agrology professionals.
The mandate of the profession of agrology demands integrity, competence, accountability and objectivity in the conduct of its members while fulfilling their professional responsibilities to the public, their employer, client, the profession and other members.
The AIA has two key ways for members to demonstrate that they are fulfilling the mandate of the profession:
First, the AIA’s Code of Ethics (see Ethical Responsibilities of Agrologists ) sets the standards required of regulated members of the Institute. The public can expect that registered members will provide competent service and conduct themselves ethically. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action.
Secondly, continuing professional development reviews commenced in January 2012. Members who do not meet or record their CPD requirements may be referred to the Complaints Director.
