BPS Code of Ethics and Conduct (2009)

20 November 2016

This Code of Ethics is designed to guide all members of the British Psychological Society in their day-to-day professional conduct.

This code, which has been produced by the Ethics Committee of the British Psychological Society, focusses on four primary ethical principles:

  • respect
  • competence
  • responsibility
  • integrity

Each of these principles is described by a statement of key values and accompanied by a set of standards which lay out the precise forms of ethical conduct and behaviour which The Society expects of its members.
