To Make a Report

After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key". Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After 5-6 business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.

Our Commitment

Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Our written standards and policies contain general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics.

ACC is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. ACC has a strong non-retaliation policy for reports made in good faith. We want ACC staff to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or Director of Compliance, and ACC members, sponsors and vendors to feel comfortable in approaching the Director of Compliance in instances where you believe violations of policies, laws or standards have occurred. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to violations stated in our written standards and policies, as well as asking for guidance related to policies and procedure and providing positive suggestions and stories.

ACC’s document titled Comprehensive Compliance Reporting Policy and Procedures (link is above under Policies) explains ACC’s policy and procedures for reporting compliance concerns, and the various channels available to report such concerns, including contact information. This hotline is one of the reporting channels available.

In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use this hotline, hosted by a third party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. Please note that some jurisdictions do not allow anonymous reports on certain types of issues. The EthicsPoint system will guide you on what you can and can not do on an anonymous basis. Also note that the information you provide will be sent to and processed in the United States for the purpose of investigating the concerns reported and taking corrective action(s) where appropriate.

To the extent possible by law, if you should choose to remain anonymous, EthicsPoint will send the information you provide to us on an anonymous basis. Regardless of how you make your report, you have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.
