BCS Code of Conduct

The BCS Code of Conduct specifies out the professional standards required by BCS as a condition of membership. It applies to members of all grades, including students and affiliates, and also non-members who offer their expertise as part of the BCS Professional Advice Register.

The Code governs the personal conduct of individual members of the BCS, who are requested to notify the Society of any significant violation by another member. Any breach of the Code brought to the attention of the Society is considered under the BCS Disciplinary procedures.

The code covers four main areas:

  1. The Public Interest
  1. Duty to Relevant Authority
  1. Duty to the Profession
  1. Professional Competence and Integrity

You can download a copy of the code from the BCS web site.
