NATIONAL BLINDNESS PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION BOARD
CODE OF CONDUCT COMPLAINT FORM

Return to Code of Conduct Information Page

 

The National Blindness Professional Certification Board (NBPCB) maintains a Code of Conduct which is intended to provide standards for ethical behavior of Structured Discovery professionals and training facilities certified by our organization. This Code of Conduct and our Guidelines and Procedures for Processing Complaints can be found on our website, www.nbpcb.org or by request at admin@nbpcb.org.

If you have been a victim of sexual assault, you can contact RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization for help at 800-656-4673.

A complaint alleging a violation of our Code of Conduct can be initiated by filling out this form and submitting it, along with any supporting documentation, to us at admin@nbpcb.org. If you would prefer to talk to someone on the phone, we can call you.

NBPCB accepts complaints from any person who has a verifiable reason to believe that a certified individual or training facility has violated our Code of Conduct within the past five years. NBPCB reserves the right to act as the Complainant when there is a reasonable suspicion to proceed with an investigation, or to extend the reporting period when the alleged violation is particularly egregious.      

Please note that only completed and signed forms can be accepted before an investigation of the alleged violation can begin. Any questions or requests for accommodations can be submitted to us at admin@nbpcb.org.

Type your response below each question. Provide as much information as you feel comfortable doing so at this time. Later we may need to ask you some additional questions to get a clearer picture of the incident(s) you are reporting.
