IRE Enforces Ethics Code

Updating its code of conduct, Investigative Reporters & Editors adopted principles calling for banning members who violate the code.

“IRE may take any action it deems appropriate to deal with those who violate our principles, including exclusion from our events, forums, listservs and the organization itself,” says the code.

By contrast, the Society of Professional Journalists says its ethics code is voluntary.
