Code of Conduct Launch

The revised Code was agreed by our Board of Trustees in July and is being launched on 9 October at our AGM.


The Code is encapsulated in six key principles:


  • behaving in an open, honest and trustworthy manner
  • acting in the best interests of your organisation, customers, clients and/or partners
  • continually developing and maintaining your professional knowledge and competence
  • respecting the people with whom you work
  • creating a positive impact on society
  • upholding the reputation of the profession and the Institute.


These principles are supplemented by a series of demonstrable behaviours and examples of good practice.  A further change is that the new Code applies to all members – across CMI and IC.  Previously there were separate Codes for CMI and IC.
