Code of Professional Conduct and Practice

We have a responsibility as the professional body for consulting to ensure our members uphold the provisions they have agreed to within the Institute of Consulting Code of Professional Conduct and Practice (Institute Code) in order to protect the reputation of all members, the profession and the purchasing community.

All members and practices must adhere to the standards of competence, honesty, integrity and other professional behaviours defined in the new Institute Code. You can view the latest version here.

Membership of a professional body implies that a duty of care is accepted by every one of its members in fulfilling their professional responsibilities as business advisers and managers. The Institute’s Code of Professional Conduct and Practice, which is binding on all members of the Institute, sets out the professional standards of conduct and competence, as well as the personal values, which members are expected to exemplify.
