EthicsPoint is a comprehensive and confidential reporting tool created by NAVEX Global and used by the IETF Administration LLC to provide confidential reporting of potential violations of IETF LLC policies, Code of Conduct, or applicable laws.

Our Commitment

The IETF Administration LLC is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Our Code of Conduct contains general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics.

IETF Administration LLC is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching supervisors or management in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred.

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. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to violations stated in our Code of Conduct, as well as asking for guidance related to policies and procedure and providing positive suggestions and stories.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

See the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.
