Event Booking Cancellations
Please note that for cancellations made less than 28 days before an event/training date the Institute of Licensing reserves the right to charge the full event/training fee. Any cancellations made after an invoice has been issued will be subject to an administration charge of £30. This is necessary to cover costs incurred by the Institute in relation to administration, catering, accommodation etc and will be particularly relevant for residential courses/training events where a significant proportion of the delegate fee is to cover the accommodation provided.
The Institute of Licensing reserves the right to cancel events or training where necessary and undertakes to do so at least 3 weeks prior to the course. We accept no liability for travel or accommodation costs incurred more than 3 weeks before an event. Where a course is cancelled less than 3 weeks in advance, the IoL will refund booked travel and accommodation at a standard rate only (i.e. 2nd class rail fare etc). Any claims must be supported by proof of booking and costs incurred.

The Disciplinary Panel
Records of Hearings
The Board of the Institute of Licensing has approved the following Code of Ethics which IoL Members agree on (membership) application to abide by:
Act with integrity
Never put our own gain above the interests of our employers, clients or others to whom we have a professional responsibility. Respect their confidentiality at all times and always consider the wider interests of society in our judgements.
Always be honest and objective
Be objective, trustworthy and never deliberately mislead by withholding or misrepresenting information. Share the full facts with our employers, clients and others, making information as plain and intelligible as possible.
Keep up to date and act within our limitations
Ensure through professional development that we are up to date with current law and practice for the licensing disciplines in which we specialise. Be aware of the limits of our competence and do not be tempted to work beyond these. Never commit to more than we can deliver.
Be accountable for all our actions
Take responsibility for our actions and do not blame others if things go wrong.
Set a good example and treat others with respect
Remember that both our public and private behaviour could affect our own and the Institute of Licensing's reputation. Never discriminate.
Have the courage to make a stand
Act if we suspect a risk to safety, illegality or malpractice of any sort.
