The American Board of Industrial Hygiene develops and promotes high ethical standards for industrial hygienists.  These rules apply to those individuals seeking ABIH certification (candidates) and all individuals certified by ABIH (certificants/Diplomates).

Individuals, groups or organizations may submit an ethics complaint against candidates or certificants by using the Ethics Complaint Form. Before submitting a complaint, please review the Code of Ethics and the ABIH Ethics Case Procedures in order to understand the ABIH ethical standards and procedures for processing complaints.

Ethics Review Committee

The Ethics Review Committee is comprised of five Diplomates. After receiving a formal complaint, the committee may be involved in determining whether violations of the ABIH Code of Ethics have occurred. The committee is referenced in the Ethics Case Procedures.
