The Judicial Commission of the Board of Certified Safety Professionals found that a certificant who disbursed BCSP copyrighted materials to others should be disciplined in accordance with the BCSP Disciplinary Policy. The certificant's status with BCSP was suspended for three years.
BCSP owns the copyrights in the electronic and printed versions of all its materials. While we appreciate consumer interests in our products, copyright law prohibits the unauthorized copying and distribution of these products.
BCSP is committed to protecting its copyrighted materials and preventing the unauthorized use or disbursement of these materials. Violations are considered a violation of the BCSP Code of Ethics and are taken very seriously. To avoid any potential violations, we encourage all to refrain from sharing such material in any manner. If you have a question as to the use of such materials, please contact us at [email protected].
We also ask that you refrain from sharing or requesting copies of other organizations' and/or individuals' proprietary materials, both generally and via BCSP social media groups. This too is an infringement on copyright laws and can be met with disciplinary actions.
We truly appreciate all our certificants and your devotion to the safety profession through the pursuit and attainment of professional certification and continuing education. We hope this reminder will serve to protect our certificants from improperly sharing BCSP copyrighted material.
