Practicing Ethically


Every BGC™ Diplomate is expected to practice ethical behavior to the best of their abilities. Each Diplomate commited to do this when initially certified and the commitment is repeated during each CM cycle by signing the declaration on the CM Worksheet or the CM-By-Exam form. In addition, each Diplomate is required to complete at least 2 hours of ethics training during each CM cycle.

A Diplomate found to be in violation of the BGC Code of Ethics will be subject to a range of sanctions up to and including de-certification. Diplomates with current sanctions are posted.
