Clarification of Use Agreement
Code of Ethics IANLP states "Members IANLP shall ensure that all programs are clearly and accurately described as to organizational structure.."
In more recent times, these requirements have not always been implemented in an exemplary manner. We have taken this as an opportunity to clarify the relevant passages in the Use Agreement.
Updated articles are as follows:
(1) IANLP mentioned
All advertising relating to an IANLP curriculum must comply with the rules of the Code of Ethics.
(2) Public availability of relevant information
In particular, all advertising must mention in writing that the curriculum complies with the guidelines of the IANLP and must provide clear information on (1) total cost of training, (2) names of training personell, (3) complete duration of the training in days and hours as well as (4) on modes/modalities of the training (e.g. face-to-face live on-site, blended, hybrid, synchronous online).
This information has to be publicly available. Without interested parties having to make an explicit contact (phone, email, chat or similar).
(3) Link to Website
In addition to the above, digital advertising (webpage, social media) relating to an IANLP curriculum must provide a weblink to the IANLP website.
