The Society has a set of rules under which it operates, is structured and governed by its Council. These are called “the Articles” and they also provide for the creation of a Code of Practice which sets out how the Society expects its members to behave and the Council’s responsibility for exercising disciplinary action against those who breach the Code. As circumstances change the Council may from time to time amend the Code of Practice but will give notice to members of its intention to do this. It is a requirement of membership of the Society that members acquaint themselves with the Code and adhere to it. Overriding principles of the Code are that members will at all times, act in such a manner to justify public trust and confidence and uphold the good standing and reputation of the hearing care profession. BSHAA requires its members, whether they are employed or self-employed, to act ethically at all times in relation to their professional practice and towards their clients.
