From 1 August 2009, members must adhere to an enhanced Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics. The current Code will continue to apply until 31 July 2009 and thereafter the enhanced Code will come into force on 1 August 2009. The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Singapore (ICPAS) and the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) are holding this educational forum on the revised Code.
The enhanced Code is based on the “Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants” of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), a global benchmark for the international accounting profession. The enhanced Code provides more guidance on how to apply the principles and the independence rules, and places an expectation to pro-actively identify and eliminate potential threats to independence.
