Membership assessment – special considerations
Labels can often be confusing. However, PPN has a high standard of ethics and this is a group which stands for training without pain or fear.
PPN has it’s own code of ethics and expects all members to be supportive of and abide by them. We evaluate membership applications by the practices of the individual, regardless of other affiliations or the providers of courses undertaken. If there are any concerns, regarding the particular practices of other members, there is a formal complaints reporting procedure that members can follow.
You will find a list of our supporting organisations, who share a similar code of ethics, at the footer of our website. We only promote and support these organistaions, through PPN, as they have gone through a formal assessment. Our code of ethics is continuously evaluated and we liase with our supporting organisations to maintain our high standards.
PPN does not accept any form of discrimination toward other members and/or third parties. Our code of ethics extends to the way in which we treat other humans and our marketing methods. We do not accept defamation in any form and ask that any concerns be reported, via the complaints reporting procedure, in the first instance – rather than a potential issue being discussed openly in the group without any due diligence into the validity of the claim/s.
PPN reserves the right to deny applications to those whom we feel do not reach our criteria, regarding our standards of ethics and of conduct. In some special circumstances we may also have a duty of care to inform our supporting organisations, or any charter/governing body, if we believe that there is an ethical reason to do so.
We cannot accept applications from anybody currently undergoing formal investigation, or those whom have been removed from our supporting organisations for breaching ethical standards. We also cannot accept applications from anybody found to display frequent inappropriate behaviour, or behaviour that could pose a risk to the safety of other members or undermine PPN and/or our supporting organisations.
We thank you for all your support and for continuing to raise the standards for animals and people.
