The Global Code of Ethics supports excellence in the development of coaching, mentoring, and supervision and raises the standards of practice of members. The Code has its own dedicated website
It was initially created in February 2016 by two professional associations, Association for Coaching (‘AC’) and EMCC and is now formally supported by many different professional membership bodies worldwide who have become signatories. You can see the current signatories here
This unified, professional Global Code of Ethics in support of excellence in practice, has a wide impact by informing the work of people who may not be members of the many signatory bodies but who practice coaching, mentoring, supervision, and training related activities or are sponsors, users, beneficiaries, and purchasers of these services around the world.
As part of its continued relevance and evolution, the Global Code of Ethics is formally reviewed bi-annually and updated by the signatory bodies. The most recent review, version 3, was completed in late 2020/early 2021 and can be viewed in English (and shortly in a range of other languages)
Additions and refinements to the wording in the Code reflect:
The expansive global reach and range of client work
Increasing use of digitalisation and AI
The inherent challenges to ethical practice around diversity, inclusion, and privacy
Forward planning to optimise professional practice in unexpected circumstances.
Signatories actively participating in the review include EMCC, AC, APECS, AICP, UNM, IMA.
The ongoing review will start again in late 2021 and welcomes IOBC as a new signatory to that process.
Any professional membership body committed to ethical practice, wishing to be an active signatory to the Global Code of Ethics, and able to contribute expertise and time to the ongoing relevance for the benefit of all clients, is very welcome.
