Do you practise an independent profession (in Dutch)? You must observe the rules of conduct and the rules of professional practice applicable to your profession. If not, people can file a complaint about you with the disciplinary tribunal of your occupational group. Alternatively, you can file a complaint if you are unhappy with the services of an independent professional. Examples of professions that can be subject to disciplinary proceedings are:
