Rules of Procedure
The Rules of Procedure for Professional Conduct (Rules) and CFA Institute Bylaws provide guidance for conducting investigations into allegations, determining violations, imposing sanctions, conducting disciplinary proceedings, and disclosing violations.
Periodically we review the Rules of Procedure, propose revisions to the Rules, invite member comment, and submit the proposed revisions to the Board of Governors for consideration.
