The Global Code of Ethics

The Global Code of Ethics supports excellence in the development of coaching, mentoring, and supervision and it raises the standards of practice of their members. It was created by two professional associations in February 2016 – Association for Coaching (‘AC’) and EMCC.

Since then other professional bodies have become signatories and can be seen here

The code has a wider impact by informing the work of people who may not be members of the signatory bodies but who practice coaching, mentoring, supervision, and training related activities or are sponsors, users, beneficiaries and purchasers of such services, anywhere around the world.

The code has recently been updated to the third version (July 2021) and is currently available Chinese (Mandarin), English, Czech, Danish, French, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish.  We are working on translating it into other languages (Arabic, Dutch, Greek, Indian (Hindi), Italian, Romanian, and Turkish).  If you would like to see the code in your language, please contact us [email protected]

You can find out more about the Code here and also download a simple copy of a pdf document of the Global Code of Ethics in your language here

The Global Code of Ethics is also available in a online or printed booklet.  The printed version is ideal for showing or leaving with your clients.  The online/printed version is free for members (the printed version is subject to a small postage cost).  And for non-members there is a nominal fee of €1.  The booklet can be ordered here
