SECTION K: ESOLVING ETHICAL QUESTIONS
a. Ethical Behavior Expected
Astrologers expect colleagues to adhere to the ISAR Ethics Standards and Guidelines. When astrologers have a reasonable basis for questioning the ethics of another astrologer's conduct or statements, they contact any member of ISAR's Board of Directors.
b. Seeking advice
When uncertain as to whether a particular situation or course of action may be in violation of ISAR'S Ethics Standards and Guidelines, astrologers consult with appropriate authorities such as those on the ISAR Ethics Education Committee.
c. Informal Resolution
When astrologers have reasonable cause to believe that another astrologer is violating an ethical standard, they may first attempt to resolve the issue informally with the other astrologer, providing that such action does not violate any client confidentiality rights.
d. Unwarranted Complaints
Astrologers do not initiate, participate in, or encourage the filing of ethics complaints that are unwarranted or solely intended to harm another as-trologer.
K.2. REPORTING ETHICS VIOLATIONS
a. Filing a Formal Complaint
Complaints may be brought to the attention of any ISAR Board member who will then relay the complaint to the appropriate committee. Alternatively, complaints may be brought directly to a member of the Ethics Mediation Committee.
b. Resolution of Formal Complaints
When a formal complaint is lodged against an ISAR member the committee obtains a written statement of the complaint, with any relevant documentation. The committee then contacts the party complained against, discusses the complaint and assesses willingness to mediate. The committee then invites the parties to mediation and appoints a mediator.
c. Cooperation With ISAR's Ethics Mediation Committee
ISAR expects that its members will agree to mediation if invited and to comply with efforts to arrive at a successful resolution.
