Resolution Institute Code of Ethics

Policy | Accessible to everyone

Resolution Institute members adhere to our Code of Ethics in their professional practice as dispute resolvers.

At Resolution Institute we conduct our business according to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, respect, and fairness in all aspects of our lives—at work, at home, and in service to our profession. This Code of Ethics describes the expectations that we have of ourselves and our fellow practitioners in the dispute resolution community. It articulates the ideals to which we aspire as well as the behaviours that are mandatory in our professional and volunteer roles. As the largest professional membership body for dispute resolvers in Australia and New Zealand, Resolution Institute should lead the way in setting the ethical and practice benchmarks for dispute resolvers, in accordance with industry, employer and community expectations.

By joining Resolution Institute, members and staff alike agree to be bound by the standards of the Code and include it as part of their working habits within their organisations, with clients, colleagues, and the community.
