Ethics Committee

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.
