The Ethics Committee establishes the Code of Ethics and, in the event of a violation of the ethical principles, analyses complaints and proposes sanctions.
The Ethics Committee has three functions:
First, it draws up and continuously updates the Code of Ethics,
Secondly, it looks into complaints raised in relation to the non-respect of the Code of Ethics and, where necessary, proposes sanctions to the WBGF Executive Board. These recommendations remain confidential until the Executive Board makes a decision.
Thirdly, it delivers advice to the WBGF Members on the implementation of the ethical principles.
