Updated Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics

In 2010, the Health and Social Care Professionals Council (Council) at CORU developed a Framework Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics detailing common standards across its regulated professions.

The Framework Code is for use by each Registration Board to adopt its own Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics.

The Framework Code underwent a complete review in 2017 and in January 2018 Council approved the Framework Code for adoption by the Registration Boards in CORU. The Council Framework Code represents a clear, straightforward code incorporating common principles across each of regulated professionals. The philosophy around adopting a common code includes recognition that many of the requirements for the professions are similar and it captures most of the key requirements, even if they are not directly relevant to a profession.
