Professional Standards

Each of us at Accounting Technicians Ireland accepts personal responsibility to support and represent a high ethical standard.

We strive to promote an environment where our students and members can excel academically, professionally and personally.

In order to ensure confidence in  Accounting Technicians Ireland and our members, we have a Code of Professional Ethics and a set of Disciplinary Procedures.  

Code of Professional Ethics

The decisions our members make in the everyday course of professional life can have real ethical implications.

Our Board of Directors produced a Code of Professional Ethics for use by members and students, which was adopted on 26th June, 2007 and is regularly updated, most recently in January 2023.

Summary of Disciplinary Procedure

We acknowledge that our members act with integrity and competence, and expect that this will continue.

As such, the disciplinary procedure should not be seen as a threat to the careers and future prospects of our members, merely a regulatory framework to provide security.
