New Member Conduct Rules, and call for panel members

New BPS rules and procedures now live.

The British Psychological Society has implemented new rules and procedures, developed by members, with more clarity on what is, and what isn’t considered under the Member Conduct Rules, better transparency on process, and clear guidance on what sanctions are considered appropriate for breaches of the rules.

Cheryl Jones, Chair of the MCR Review Group, said: ‘Now the rules are live [see www.bps.org.uk/news-and-policy/member-conduct-rules] we invite you to be a part of ensuring that the membership as a whole take ownership of these new rules and their implementation. We are looking for members to join the Standing Panel from which all of our member conduct panels will be drawn. We want the Standing Panel to reflect the whole society, across all grades, domains and regions/nations, to facilitate inclusivity and diversity, so we can build a shared responsibility for upholding the standards that are based on our shared values.’
