IMC USA requires its members to adhere to a Code of Ethics as a condition of membership and for certification.

This code helps IMC USA members maintain professionalism and ethical standards as they provide services to clients, and as they deal with their colleagues and the public. Adhering to the Code demonstrates a voluntary commitment to ethical actions above and beyond the requirements of law.

Ethical behavior includes practices such as:

  • Safeguarding confidential information.
  • Rendering impartial, independent advice.
  • Accepting only those client engagements they are qualified to perform.
  • Agreeing with the client in advance on the basis for professional charges.
  • Developing realistic and practical solutions to client problems.

The Institute enforces the Code by investigating complaints of violations and by taking disciplinary action, including revoking the certification of any member who is found guilty of a Code violation. Read the IMC Code of Ethics.
