ISNR members must maintain high standards of professional competence as it relates to the member’s profession and its current guidelines and standards, in addition to offering full accuracy in all statements of professional credentials and knowledge, verifiable via published scientific papers and evidence.

In terms of service provision, the member must have an ever-present concern for the well-being of treatment recipients and a dedication to protecting others from harm while providing services to all, regardless of creed, age, race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, or social and religious affiliations. Further, ISNR members must respect the rights of service recipients to participate in planning procedures and to refuse or cease treatment.

Further, ISNR members commit to creating professional and objective relationships with all service recipients and protecting confidential information gathered during professional interactions unless otherwise stipulated by law.

Finally, members must support discourse relating to theories and findings within the applied neuroscience field and provide assistance to treatment recipients to ensure they retain appropriate levels of self-regulation and autonomy, all while adhering to the ISNR’s Professional Code of Conduct and retaining their moral character.
