In keeping with accepted practice amongst professional bodies, the AAPT has ‘rules’ that all members must adhere to as part of their membership.
These rules include a code of conduct and a number of related policies, such as the ‘Policy for Use of Social Media and Engagement with Other Media’.
As a result, there is a need for policy that details what will happen if these rules are breached, allowing the situation to be dealt with in a fair, consistent and transparent way – as a result, AAPT drafted a policy document that all members could comment upon before going live. The consultation period ended 12th May 2017 and AAPT can now launch the document as official policy.
