Code of Professional Conduct

On October 15, 2000, the SOA Board of Governors adopted a revised Code of Professional Conduct as presented by the Joint Committee on the Code of Professional Conduct to be applicable to all Fellows and Associates of the Society of Actuaries effective January 1, 2001.

The Code of Professional Conduct sets forth what it means for an actuary to act as a professional. It identifies the responsibilities that actuaries have to the public, to their clients and employers, and to the actuarial profession.

The Society of Actuaries Board thanks the Joint Committee on the Code of Professional Conduct for their hard work and perseverance in drafting the Code and obtaining the approval of all five U.S.–based actuarial organizations.
