- keep their skills and competence up to date
We also investigate complaints and misconduct allegations against AAT members and carry out ongoing monitoring of AAT licensed members.
Professional standards: what we expect of our members
AAT expects high standards of competence and professional conduct from all of its members. Every AAT member must adhere to our Code of Professional Ethics (PDF).
Regulations, policies, bye-laws and guidance
This lists our professional standards documents in PDF and shows the members they're relevant to. We will consider arranging for any of the following published documents to be provided in an alternative format if requested by way of a reasonable adjustment within the meaning of AAT’s Health and Disability policy.
AAT disciplinary processes and tribunals
If a member has breached our Code of Professional Ethics we will take disciplinary action where necessary to ensure that AAT membership retains its high standards.
