DISCIPLINARY MATTERS

BREACH OF EXAMINATION AND/OR ASSESSMENT REGULATIONS

Philip Nicholson of Lockton, Houndsditch, London

The assessment candidate allowed his coursework assignment to be accesses by another candidate, in breach of the Mixed Assessment Candidate Guidelines. The CII case examiner invited the respondent to approve and sign a consensual order under 9.1 of the CII Disciplinary Procedure Rules 2015, to which the respondent agreed, and which came into effect on 13 July 2018. The sanctions issued were that the respondent: a) be reprimanded; and b) be required to take and complete the CII on line ethics course before renewing membership, booking any CII examinations, enrol on any CII assessments or apply for any CII recognition of prior learning.

The coursework assessment candidate was found to have plagiarised another candidate’s 992 Risk Management in Insurance Assignment 3, in breach of the Coursework Assessment Guidelines and Instructions. The CII case examiner invited the respondent to approve and sign a consensual order under 9.1 of the CII Disciplinary Procedure Rules 2015, to which the respondent agreed, and which was signed on 13 August 2018. The sanctions issued were that the respondent: a) be reprimanded (DR 12.6a); b) have the 992 coursework assessment assignment result disallowed (Reg 12.6); c) be excluded from CII examinations and assessments for 24 months (with effect from 1 January 2018) (Reg 12.6l) and would have to take the CII on-line ethics course before taking any CII exams and assessments or applying for recognition of prior learning in future or applying to re-join as a member of the CII (Reg 12.6d); and d) would not be eligible for CII recognition of prior learning for examinations, assessments or qualifications obtained by the respondent during the 24 months’ period of exclusion (Reg 12.6p).

“To date, the CII has dealt with five instances of non-members using CII designations for 2018. As this is an infringement of CII’s trademarks, where people persist in misusing CII designations, legal action will be taken against them”


TAKE NOTE

Where the disciplinary panel or case examiner has decided to publish details of a disciplinary case ascribed (ie where an individual has been named), every care has been taken to identify members correctly. Please contact the CII if there is any doubt about the identity of a member who may have been the subject of disciplinary proceedings and in relation to whom a report has been published.
