If matters involving unethical behavior arise, we offer a formal ethics complaint process. All ethical cases are taken seriously and are investigated by the Ethics Review Committee (ERC) on behalf of the PMI Board of Directors. The ERC is authorized to resolve and end all ethics cases brought to the Institute, and to order disciplinary or remedial actions.
You can address unethical behavior informally, at the chapter level, and formally through the PMI ethics complaint process.

About the PMI Ethics Review Committee
The ERC exercises ultimate authority to resolve and end all ethics matters brought to the Institute, regardless of the circumstances of the case.
The committee consists of approximately 15 volunteer members who serve a three-year term. Members observe strict confidentiality requirements and may not discuss any cases publicly. They may not participate in reviews or hearings if a possible conflict of interest exists.
