Code of Professional Conduct for IBCLCs
It is in the best interests of the profession of lactation consultants that there is a Code of Professional Conduct for IBCLCs to provide guidance to lactation consultants in their professional practise and conduct.

IBCLCs agree to be governed by the Code of Professional Conduct for IBCLCs and are also governed by the IBLCE Disciplinary Procedures for any violations of the Code of Professional Conduct for IBCLCs.

Sanctions List
The IBLCE Disciplinary Procedures provide for public notification of public reprimand, suspension, and/or revocation.
