The Institute’s Professional Review Board (PRB) has five potential outcomes in disciplinary matters :
A finding of no violation
A private letter of censure
A public letter of censure
A suspension of the individual’s certification for a designated period of time (requiring the respondent to submit to the PRB a formal application for reinstatement after disciplinary suspension), and/or:
A termination of an individual’s certification.
The PRB decision can be based upon a number of factors, including, without limitation, the severity of the violation, any mitigating circumstances, and the individual’s cooperation with the investigation of the Professional Review Board or Hearing Panel.
