New Code of Ethics: Do’s and Don’ts

Code of Ethics | Global Self-Care Federation

The new Code of Ethics will come into force on 1 April 2023. There are some “do’s and don’ts when it comes to “integrity” and that section of the Code.

When dealing with Integrity:


  • act with courtesy, honesty, good faith and integrity in relation to every person
  • make best efforts to ensure that any representations are accurate and are not misleading


  • engage in any act or omission that would be disgraceful, dishonourable, unprofessional or unbecoming
  • engage in any act or omission that would bring the sector into disrepute or to undermine public confidence
  • counsel, advise or knowingly assist a person to contravene the Act, the regulations or any other law
  • engage in or be a party to fraud
  • engage in or be a party to misrepresentation or any unethical practice
  • treat any person in a manner that would contravene the Human Rights Code
  • engage in conduct that is intimidating, coercive or abusive or that constitutes undue pressure or harassment.

There are certainly a lot more don’ts, but usually that’s the way laws are written. On the positive side, it’s more difficult to express minimum requirements.
