It applies to the behaviour of members as they undertake their professional and personal responsibilities. The Code commits all members to act in the interests of the public at large. Any member who displays unprofessional conduct or violates any article of the Code of Professional Conduct shall be subject to disciplinary action.
   
     C101 Members shall comply with all articles in the Code of Professional                Conduct.
     C102 Members shall not discriminate against any person for any reason.
     C103 The Code commits all members to the interest of the public at large.
     C104 Members shall not engage in any activity which they suspect to be               unlawful or which would bring the integrity of the profession into               disrepute.

     C201 Members shall adhere to all rules, regulations, policies and procedures
              and amendments thereto, as established by the Institute.

              circumstances.
