Notice to Members
On April 9th, 2022, the National Executive Council (NEC) approved the amalgamation of all CIPHI member appeal review processes under one national operating policy – NOP #28 National Appeal Review Process. This policy can be found here.
The NEC, the Board of Certification (BOC) and the Council of Professional Experience (CoPE) collaborated on this new policy which is effective immediately. Previous appeal processes found in NOPs #6 and #24 and BOC Policy #9 have been replaced with NOP #28. New appeal processes have been added.
This new policy is intended to:
- inform members as to what CIPHI policy decisions can be appealed (Sec 1.0 Right to Appeal)
- streamline the appeal application and review process and
- promote fair and equitable treatment of appellants regardless of the nature of the appeal
Generic process information that guides all types of appeals are in the body of NOP #28 and specifics for each decision under appeal can be found in the appendices to the policy. Application forms for submitting an appeal are also included in the corresponding appendices. If you still have questions on the national appeal process after reading NOP #28 please contact the CIPHI National Office at office@CIPHI.ca
