To support ICF Members and Credential-holders in understanding and applying the revised ICF Code of Ethics, the ICF Code of Ethics Review Team has prepared a set of Interpretive Statements.
The Interpretive Statements provide a detailed look at the perspective of the Code Review Team behind the revision of each standard of the Code. Use them as a resource to further your understanding of the ICF Code of Ethics and how you may apply them to your coaching.
The Interpretive Statements are accessible here and are to be treated as a living document that will be updated from time to time with additional content as necessary.
If you have any questions around the Interpretive Statements, the ICF Code of Ethics, or ethics in coaching, please contact the ICF Ethics Assist line at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1.859.226.4245.
