GAFM ® Complaint Procedures

To assist the public when filing a complaint against any GAFM designated professional please review the policies provided below.

When an GAFM professional has been awarded the use of any GAFM designation certification or charter, the member agrees to abide by the code of ethics and CE rules of the GAFM Handbook and to comply with all local/state/federal/ and provincial laws in which the professional has residence. If a wrongdoing or violation has happened and a substantiated complaint is issued against a certified member, the Global Board will investigate and determine if disciplinary action is needed. The GAFM ethics, terms and disclaimers are clear about abiding by rules and regulations of any governmental body.

Rational and Reasons For Discipline

 Conduct by a member constitutes grounds for discipline if it violates rules, ethics or policies in the Handbook, Bylaws or Code of Ethics, or any violation of criminal laws in the region/country in which an GAFM certification holder works or resides, or any action that violates a professional license an GAFM member holds. All complaints will be reviewed by the GAFM Legal and compliance team.


If a complaint is justified and a certified member has been found guilty of a crime or violation which has been determined by the GAFM Board or local/state/county laws in which the member resides or works, the board can immediately terminate any membership status or certification held by any member.

The GAFM Board acts to enforce its Code of Ethics, policies, and rules of the professional conduct that the public can expect to receive.

Upon the receipt of an official written complaint issued against any GAFM member, the Board will carefully review the information and determine if further investigation is required. Any GAFM member will be given the right to confront or defend any complaint.
