Dispute Resolution Program
The College uses Dispute Resolution (DR) to facilitate the resolution of suitable complaints regarding members of the profession. DR is voluntary and without prejudice to the parties. Agreements arising from this process protect the public interest and are similar in nature to those expected following a full investigation or hearing.
The College's committees consider the public interest in determining whether publication of such matters is necessary. The College monitors compliance with all agreements reached through DR.

Glossary of terminology
The vocabulary used to report disciplinary hearings reflects their quasi-judicial nature. If you wonder what some terms mean, help is at hand.
For past and future reference, the College has posted a glossary of terms on its web site. A link to the glossary can be found on the decision-summary page.
Professionally Speaking reported the first College disciplinary hearings in the Blue Pages of its June 1998 edition. Summaries are also posted on the College web site.
When the Discipline Committee finds a member guilty of professional misconduct, the member's name is routinely published in Professionally Speaking. If a similar matter is disposed of by the Investigation Committee or DR at the investigation stage, and the result is a caution, the name of the member is not published. The College monitors compliance with all agreements reached through DR.
