Discipline in the sector
Compliance with codes of conduct is an essential element of the self-regulation of the financial sector. Unfortunately, history has proven that this does not work if it is not enforced. DSI has therefore made Ethics Enforcement one of its three priorities, along with Screening and Certification.
Tuchtrecht: Disciplinary rules
The DSI Foundation facilitates an ethics committee and an appeals committee. These committees can take disciplinary action if an employee in the financial sector violates the Code of Conduct and draws negative attention to the financial sector. The measures can vary from reprimands or fines to suspension or expulsion from the DSI registers.
Individuals certified by DSI are subject to the Code of Conduct and the attendant ethics regulations.
