Professional Standards

STEP members are expected to abide by the STEP Codes of Conduct, which set out the key ethical and professional standards a member should uphold. These professional standards provide a clear understanding of what to expect from a STEP member.

If you feel one of our members is not acting in accordance with STEP’s professional standards, you can make a complaint via the Complaints and Disciplinary Process.

STEP's codes of conduct and disciplinary processes and procedures are overseen by the Professional Standards Committee and the Disciplinary Panel.
