Code of Ethics

The EMCC Global Code of Ethics is the professional code of conduct by which our Members adhere.  It is a means by which we look to regulate the professional practice of all members and is the code of their professional responsibility.

Many individuals say that they choose EMCC as their Professional Body of choice because of this ethical code.

The code itself discusses the difficult issues, difficult decisions that will often need to be made and provides a clear account of what behaviour is considered ‘ethical’, ‘correct’ or ‘right’ in the circumstances.

Where a breach of the code occurs it allows involved parties an opportunity for complaint and resolution.  It places certain responsibilities on an EMCC member when a complaint has been made against them or in the instance where an EMCC member becomes aware that a fellow colleague and member has behaved in an unethical manner.

Members' Stories
Stand out benefits of EMCC membership for me are the Coaching Agreement, the excellent networking opportunities that regional events provide, access to the International Journal of Coaching and excellent European links.
