International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants
The International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards) is effective as of June 15, 2019. In addition to extensive restructuring changes, the Code includes substantive revisions, including to the conceptual framework. The conceptual framework explains how all professional accountants are required to apply the Code in order to comply with the fundamental principles of ethics, and where applicable, be independent.
The IESBA eCode is a web-based tool that delivers the Code in a digital platform. The eCode includes “app-like” features and functionalities, which better demonstrates the Code’s “building blocks” architecture and scalability.
