Chapter IX. The disciplinary regime

Article 29

The governing body can sanction infractions committed by members.

These infringements can be classified as minor, serious and very serious, and the corresponding sanctions can range from a warning to expulsion from the association, as established in the internal regulations.

The sanctioning procedure is initiated ex officio or as a result of a complaint or communication. Within 10 days, the Board of Management appoints an instructor, who processes the sanctioning file and proposes a resolution within 15 days, with a prior hearing of the alleged offender. The final resolution, which has to be motivated and approved by two thirds of the members of the Board of Management, is adopted by this governing body also within a period of 15 days.

Against sanctions for serious and very serious offences agreed by the Board of Management, the persons concerned may apply for ratification at the first general assembly.
