In early April 2018, the IESBA released a completely rewritten and revamped Code of Ethics for professional accountants (PAs). Renamed "International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards) ("the Code" or "the revised and restructured Code"), the Code will become effective in June 2019.
It packages all substantive advancements in ethics and independence over the last four years into a single document and includes the new provisions relating to non-compliance with law and regulations ("NOCLAR"), which are already effective since July 2017, and the revised independence provisions relating to long association which comes into effect in December 2018.
