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. You can report a potential or actual violation 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 eight months left until graduation
Submit an Ethics Review Preapplication form.
If you’re a student with fewer than eight months left until graduation
Answer the ethics questions on your application, then send supporting material.
When gathering the supporting documentation you’ll submit, use one of the following as a guide:
We must receive all required documentation within 30 days after you submit your application.
Once received, our Ethics Committee will review your submission and may 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.
Please note: If you choose to sit for an examination before ARRT determines that you’ve met our ethics requirements, we’ll hold your exam score until we make that determination. If we determine that you hadn’t met our ethics requirements when you sat for the exam, we’ll cancel your score. This exam attempt will count as one of the three attempts we allow.
CONCERNED ABOUT REPORTING AN ETHICS VIOLATION?
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.
