UCAR EthicsPoint


At NCAR and UCAR we value responsibility, ethics, and integrity. UCAR Codes of Conduct apply to all UCAR employees and non-employees at any UCAR sponsored event or any venue where work is performed on behalf of UCAR. UCAR employees as well as non-employees may make a complaint or be the subject of a complaint. Learn more about ethics and integrity at NCAR and UCAR on the UCAR Ethics & Integrity website


EthicsPoint acts as a confidential and independent third-party provider to send your report automatically to UCAR. Unless you identify yourself, all reports received by EthicsPoint are anonymous. If you wish to remain anonymous, please do not report information in a manner that may personally identify you.

UCAR does not tolerate retaliation for making a report. For more information see UCAR's Ethics & Integrity website, EthicsPoint Hotline FAQs, or Reporting a complaint - HR procedure FAQ.


There are two methods to make a report using EthicsPoint. Both methods allow you to remain anonymous.

  • 1. Select the "Make a Report" tab at the top of this webpage or click here and follow the instructions;
  • OR
  • 2. Dial the NCAR and UCAR EthicsPoint Hotline, toll-free, within the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico and Canada. You will be connected to a live ethics intake professional. A translator will be made available if needed.

After you complete your report, you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key," and asked to choose a password. Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. If you choose to report anonymously, you will not be able to access or follow-up on your report if you lose your report key or password; you will have to create a new report.


UCAR will respond to your concern as quickly as possible, generally within 24 to 48 hours. In rare cases, it can take up to 5-6 business days to process intake of a report. Use the “Follow Up on a Report” tab at the top of this webpage and then enter your report key and password to check the status of your report and to anonymously respond to questions from a UCAR representative about your case. If you submitted a report over the phone you can also call the UCAR EthicsPoint Hotline. For more information about making a report through EthicsPoint, please see EthicsPoint Hotline FAQs.
