How the American Psychological Association's ethics code deals with the enforcement of ethical violations through its 'rules and procedures' is discussed. The code provides both general principles and decision rules. The threshold for determining whether or not there is cause even to open an investigation is discussed. Finally, the commentary discusses whether or not smaller associations should get involved in ethics investigations and points out that false accusations could possibly increase in the absence of thorough ethics investigations. One alternative for smaller organizations is to work together to establish a consortium for ethical conduct in science.
