Lodging Complaints with Disciplinary Committee
Any member of the public, an association or an organisation may lodge a complaint against a member who is registered with the Institute if they feel that the said member who may be an accountant whether in practice or business is guilty of improper or unprofessional conduct. At the outset, it is important to understand that the Institute through the Standards & Regulatory Board investigates alleged improper conduct on the part of individual registered accountants and auditors and, if necessary, implements disciplinary action against such erring members. The Board is not in a position to assist with the recovery of monies – it is neither a Court nor an alternative to the normal debt collection procedures. In order for such a complaint to be made, it is important to note the person is required to be registered with ZICA, the ultimate jurisdiction resides with the Standards and Regulatory Board and finally the powers of the Disciplinary Committee are purely disciplinary in nature.
