Ethics

The international code of ethics and standards of professional conduct

One of ASIF’s specific objectives is “to encourage and develop professional ethics and standards”. To this end, ASIF actively promotes the adoption or adaptation of the ICIA’s International Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct (ICE) adopted by the ICIA in September 1998. While not mandatory, as a member federation of the ICIA and in line with its own founding object, ASIF encourages its member societies to use the Codes and Standards as a model to develop or improve its own ethical standards.

An updated survey of ASIF members on the progress of the ICIA International Code of Ethics (ICE) conducted in May 2002 shows that members either have existing codes and standards which are compatible with the ICEs, have adopted the ICEs.
