Results of the inquiry

After having completed the inquiry, the syndic may decide:

  • not to lodge the complaint; 
  • to issue a written warning to the CPA; 
  • to lodge a complaint with the Disciplinary Council. 

If the syndic decides not to lodge the complaint against the CPA or to issue a warning, the person who requested the inquiry is informed in writing of the reasons for the decision and of the option of requesting an opinion from the Review committee.

Where there are reasonable grounds to believe that the CPA's professional competence or the manner in which the CPA practices the profession should be the subject of an inspection or an inquiry, the syndic also informs the Professional inspection committee.
