SPIE Confidential Reporting Hotline

At SPIE, we are committed to the highest standards of conduct and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. This reporting hotline is here for you to report any concerns you may have about unethical behavior, policy violations, or illegal activities. We are committed to investigating all reports thoroughly and taking appropriate action.

This hotline is hosted by a third-party provider, EthicsPoint, so your report may be submitted on a confidential and anonymous basis.

Please note it is difficult for SPIE to act on anonymous reports of bullying, discrimination, or harassment; however, they will still be investigated to the extent possible.

See SPIE Policies under the Policies tab above.

See the EthicsPoint FAQ for more information
