The IOV Code of Practice was formulated in 1987 by the IOV Executive to act as a guideline for its membership. The proof of its success is that it still represents the fundamental principles by which the IOV operates. The Code of Practice is a powerful document and, by signing the Membership Application form, every member has agreed to abide by its principles.
The Code of Practice has been designed to aid both the videographer and the general public by outlining certain standards and expectations that should, if met fully, ensure that every commission is carried out to everyone’s satisfaction. This document is not to be taken as a strict set of ‘Rules & Regulations’, but is useful in reassuring potential clients. Any member deviating from the Code of Practice must be able to justify their actions to the Executive.
