In cases of suspected scientific misconduct the FMP follows the "Rules of Procedure in Cases of Suspected Scientific Misconduct" of the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V.
The FMP elects two experienced scientists as Ombudspersons for the duration of three years, who serve as confidential contact persons for all issues dealing with good scientific practice.

A further proceeding in case of suspected scientific misconduct is described in the rules established by the Leibniz Association and the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V.
