Members must not advocate or use conversion therapy or derivative thereof which assumes certain sexual orientations or gender identities are inferior to others, and must not see to change to suppress them on that basis.

Members must advise ATSAC if they have ever faced disciplinary procedures by an employer, had a membership of a professional body refused, or been the subject of an upheld complaint against them.

Should a member face a new disciplinary procedure of any kind, they must inform ATSAC within 14 days and agree to share information regarding this procedure. Failure to provide this will result in membership cancellation.
