About the committee
The Ethics Standards Committee is responsible for overseeing the ICAEW's ethics activities including the evolution of the ICAEW Code of Ethics. The committee coordinates ICAEW’s interaction with and representations to external bodies such as the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants on matters relating to ethics. It works to identify emerging issues and areas of work on professional ethics that are relevant to members and ICAEW’s public interest perspective and acts as a source of expertise on ethics for other ICAEW boards, committees and departments. The committee comprises a combination of ICAEW members (and non-members with appropriate expertise) from business, practice and academia, and from different size organisations.
