Disciplinary Actions

Public Disciplinary Actions

IMCA’s Professional Review Board can take four types of disciplinary action, three of which are public and one of which is private:

  1. A private letter of censure.
  2. A public censure.
  3. A suspension of the individual’s certification, and/or:
  4. A termination of an individual’s certification, depending on a number of factors, including, without limitation, the severity of the violation, any mitigating circumstances, and the individual’s cooperation with the investigation of the Professional Review Board or Hearing Panel.
