An interim amendment to the structure of the RESNET Ethics Appeal Panel has been approved and is effective November 1, 2018. The RESNET Standards allows the appellant to appeal the decision made by the Ethics and Appeals Committee by forming an Ethics Appeal Panel to review the decision and any supporting documentation. The previous process allowed for either the person making the appeal or RESNET to gain a majority vote on the appeals panel on the final decision. This process needed to be amended so that both sides have an equal vote. The approved amendment requires that RESNET and the appellant will each have two voting members on the appeals panel. All decisions of the Ethics Appeal Panel will be final and to prevail, the appellant must receive a majority vote. Click on Addendum 40i Ethics Appeal Panel to download the interim amendment.
