Standards of Professional Conduct
In all their professional activities members of the IPM, of whatever grade, must:
(a) demonstrate competence, honesty, integrity, due diligence and appropriate behaviour;
(b) exercise professional judgement to the best of their skill and understanding, acting both objectively and impartially;
(c) respect diversity in both individuals and locations and promote equality of opportunity;
(d) seek to maintain their professional competence and to update and refresh their skills and knowledge, and not undertake activity in areas where knowledge and ability is limited without adequate preparation;
(e) endeavour to enhance the standing and reputation of the profession and the Institute of Place Management.
In addition to the above, we expect all members to act at all times within the law of their respective jurisdiction, and not to assist or encourage others who may be engaged in unlawful activities.
The nature of the role requires that members act in an open and transparent manner so as to encourage inclusion and involvement in decisions, but members must respect the need for confidentiality where there is legitimate need or requirement for this, not disclosing or using such information for the advantage of others or themselves.
