The Irish Professional Private Investigators Association (I.P.P.I.A.) was formed as a result of the introduction of mandatory licencing by authorities of Private Investigators operating in the Republic of Ireland.
Our aim is to promote as well as protect the Private Investigation Profession in Ireland by achieving the highest Industry Standards possible and holding our members accountable to a Professional Code of Conduct and Ethics.
We also strive to safeguard the interests of our colleagues and clients alike, by providing total confidentiality and privacy for those who utilise our services.

ALL MEMBERS ARE SUBJECT TO A COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE IF A COMPLAINT ARISES FROM THE GENERAL PUBLIC AND IS SUBMITTED THROUGH IPPIA.
A Complaint may be made by email to the IPPIA email address as advertised on its website.
The complaint may be accepted by any member of the Committee but must be passed to the complaints officer of IPPIA. The officer will then make the Chairperson aware of the complaint but only the complaints officer solely will investigate if the complaint has merit.
A complaint may only be accepted in writing with the complainant's name and address verified.
The complainant may not pass information which is considered a breach of data protection.
Any such material transferred to IPPIA will be deleted and not considered applicable.
When the complaints officer has finished his/her background inquiry and gathering of facts, this will be passed to the committee for approval.
Once approved, a general outline plus the complainant's initial letter of complaint will be emailed to the accused for clarification and written reply.
Where arbitration has failed or is deemed inappropriate, a decision on sanction will be made.
Sanction may include expulsion from IPPIA Membership or Suspension of Membership for a specified period.
In a case of non-acceptance of a Final Decision, an Independent Arbitrator will be appointed at the expense of the Appellant whose Decision will be binding on all Parties.
