As part of IEMA’s ongoing mission to develop the profession, the membership code of practice is set to be reviewed, and members will have the opportunity to get involved in reshaping it.
Head of professional standards Claire Kirk, who will lead the review with IEMA’s Professional Standards Committee, said that over the coming months she will seek feedback and input from members to “bring the code to life”.
“The code of practice is what we are all professionally held accountable to, so it’s essential that it is shaped by those who will use and refer to it,” said Kirk.
“We’ll want to know how, and if, you’ve used the existing code of practice, examples of where your professional and ethical code have been tested, and what standard of professional and ethical conduct you expect of yourself and your peers to make sure it’s robust and future-fit,” she continued.
Please look out for opportunities to get involved in the review very soon
