Our code of ethics is made up of five fundamental principles:
Integrity: being straightforward, honest and truthful in all professional and business relationships. We will not be associated with any information that we believe contains a materially false or misleading statement, or which is misleading by omission.
Objectivity: we do our best to avoid any bias, conflict of interest or the influence of other people to override our professional judgement.
Professional competence and due care: we will endeavour an ongoing commitment to improve our level of professional knowledge and skill. It will be based on current developments in practice, legislation and techniques.
Confidentiality: we will not disclose professional information unless we have specific permission or a legal or professional duty to do so.
Professional behaviour: we will comply with relevant laws and regulations. We will also avoid any action that could negatively affect the reputation of the profession.
