Complaints and Disciplinary Process

The Disciplinary Process is used to investigate any report suggesting a member may have acted in contravention of the Code of Professional Conduct

Making a Complaint

STEP prides itself on the high standards and competence of its members. If you feel that the service offered by a STEP member has fallen below the professional standards outlined in one of our Codes of Professional Conduct you can make a complaint to STEP’s Professional Standards team using the form below.

Complaints Process

We have produced two leaflets to explain what happens when you make a complaint about a STEP member or a complaint is made about you and what you can expect from STEP.

Disciplinary Rules 

The STEP disciplinary process is outlined in the Disciplinary Rules below.  

Publications policy

The following publications policy for the Disciplinary Panel establishes the information to be made publicly available following a sanction imposed by the Investigation Sub Committee.
