CGMA CODE OF ETHICS 

 

About the Code of Ethics for CGMA Designation Holders

The Code of Ethics for CGMA designation holders is aligned with the requirements contained in the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and 2015 CIMA Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants. Accordingly, CIMA and AICPA members (in business and industry) who hold the CGMA designation and are compliant with the respective AICPA and CIMA codes will also be in compliance with the CGMA code.

The AICPA and CIMA bylaws continue to require that all respective members adhere to the AICPA and CIMA codes and failure to comply with the respective codes may result in disciplinary action.

In our ongoing effort to support life-long learning for CGMA designation holders, we will continue to build on the range of ethics tools and resources which already exist on CGMA.org, as well as those available via the websites of the AICPA and CIMA.
