IESBA launches new web-based version of the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants

5 December 2014

The International Ethics Board for Accountants (IESBA, the Ethics Board) recently released a web-based Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (the Code). The web-based 2014 Code is designed to provide enhanced access and greater ease of use and navigation.

Key features of the web-based Code include the ability to:

  • Find relevant pages and sections using a powerful keyword search;
  • Display definitions of key terms within the text;
  • Navigate sequentially or by using the interactive table of contents; and
  • Access previous editions and links to translations, most of which are hosted on third-party sites.

Related to the new platform, the IESBA is currently consulting on ways to improve the structure and delivery of the Code. Submit your comments by 4 February 2015.
