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, Association for Coaching (‘AC’) and European Mentoring and Coaching Council (‘EMCC’), in February 2016.

Three additional professional associations have joined this initiative in 2018: Association for Professional Executive Coaches and Supervisors (‘APECS’), Associazione Italiana Coach Professionisti (‘AICP’) and the Mentoring Institute at the University of New Mexico.

These five bodies have collaborated and combined their best practices to create an updated version of the Global Code of Ethics for the benefit of their members and society at large. This version comes into effect on 1 May 2018 and will apply to all the signatories’ membership categories. The signatories will be inviting other world-wide professional bodies in the field, to join this initiative and become organisational signatories.

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.
