Approved by the IESBA at its March 2016 meeting, the changes strengthen the Code's Part C provisions addressing the responsibilities of professional accountants in business (PAIB) when preparing or presenting information. They also provide new requirements and guidance for PAIBs regarding pressure to breach the fundamental principles.

The close-off document has been prepared in accordance with the extant structure and drafting conventions of the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants™ (the Code). It will be used as a basis for preparing a restructured version in accordance with the new structure and drafting conventions for the Code. The formal release will be the restructured version.
