IFAC Launches "Exploring the IESBA Code"

An Informational Series to Promote the Code of Ethics

Nov 26, 2019 | English

Professional accountants and other business professionals are often faced with complicated, real world situations that are not black and white and demand pragmatic and ethical solutions. To help address these challenging situations, IFAC is releasing the first installment in a new series titled: Exploring the IESBA Code.

Through twelve monthly installments, Exploring the IESBA Code will take an in-depth look at the International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards) (the Code).  Each installment of the series will highlight different aspects of the Code in real-world situations, in a manner that is relatable and practical. A special focus will be placed on recent revisions to the Code.

The first installment of the Exploring the IESBA Code deals with the five Fundamental Principles of ethics, which establish the standard of behavior expected of all professional accountants - a standard which enable accountants to uphold their responsibility to act in the public interest.

To read and download this and future installments, visit the IFAC website.

The Exploring the IESBA Code was published by IFAC and does not form part of the Code. It is non-authoritative and is not a substitute for reading the Code.
