ARITA Code of Professional Practice

The ARITA Code has been developed as the standard for professional conduct in the insolvency profession.

The primary purposes of ARITA Code are to:

  • educate ARITA members as to their professional responsibilities; and
  • provide a reference for stakeholders against which they can gauge the conduct of practitioners.

Members should be guided, not merely by the specific terms, but by the spirit of this Code.
