how to report A Potential ETHICS VIOLATION
If you think you may have violated our Rules of Ethics or you’re aware of behavior by someone else that might constitute an ethics violation, it’s important to report the activity to ARRT.
Report a potential or actual violation by yourself or someone else using the Ethics Violation Report Form.
- If you’re an R.T., report your ethics violation within 30 days of its occurrence. Log into your account for more information.
- If you’re a student with more than six months left in a program or not yet enrolled in a program, submit an ethics review preapplication form.
- If you’re a new graduate or a student with fewer than six months left in a program, answer the ethics questions on your application and send supporting material.
When gathering the supporting documentation you’ll submit, use one of the following as a guide:
Our Ethics Committee will review your submission and might begin a more in-depth investigation. If the committee determines that you’ve committed an ethics violation that warrants sanction, you might be ineligible to apply for a set period of time.
Contact our Ethics Requirements Department at 651.687.0048, ext. 8580, if you have questions.
Although reporting aN ethics violation might worry you—
It’s always the right decision. In most cases, failing to report a potential violation brings consequences more severe than those for the violation itself.
People who report potential problems usually don’t receive ineligible or revocation sanctions—
Of 2,093 alleged ethics violations investigated in 2018, only 29 cases (1.4 percent) resulted in revocation of an R.T.’s certification and registration.
