API Code of Ethics

The API has recently undertaken a review of the Code of Ethics. As part of this review, the API has incorporated the ethical principles contained within the International Ethics Standards published by the International Ethics Standards Coalition dated May 2021.

The updated Code of Ethics has been approved by the API Board with an effective date of 1 August 2021.

The API has produced an education training module that covers both the API Code of Ethics and the API Rules of Professional Conduct. The training module is available to Members here.
