Ethical code and disciplinary

The Ethical Code and Disciplinary Rules

The ethical code and disciplinary rules apply to all members, including student members, of the ACT, as defined in the Bye-laws.

The ethical code and disciplinary rules provide an effective framework for the conduct of treasury activities. Procedures for dealing with those who are found to be in breach of the Code have helped ensure that treasurers act in accordance with the highest professional standards.

Any person concerned about the conduct of a member, student, affiliate member, member of the ACT management team, Council or any of its committees should refer in the first instance to the speaking up policy.

The importance of ethics when regulation has become more all embracing is discussed in Ethics in an Era of Regulation.

All members, corporate representatives, affiliates and students are required to abide by the ACT's ethical code and disciplinary rules.

The Members' confidential advisor for those facing a personal or ethical dilemma is The Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury. Contact e-mail: – and formerly Treasurer of Enterprise Oil.
