IRCM CIC Code of Conduct
The International Regulator of Coaching and Mentoring CIC (IRCM CIC) is a company limited by guarantee and a Community Interest Company. The IRCM CIC is the only international regulator approved by the Regulator of Community Interest Companies for the Coaching and Mentoring industry; which is appointed by the United Kingdom’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
This approval gives the IRCM CIC the authority to carry out international activities for the benefit of coaching and mentoring professionals, professional bodies (accreditation bodies, trade/membership bodies, and associations), training organisations, corporate organisations, and the personal or corporate consumer. As part of this approval, the IRCM CIC maintains an industry recognised Code of Ethics and Disciplinary Procedures which includes the IRCM CIC’s own Code of Conduct.
Integrity is fundamental to the IRCM CIC; and along with our other values of professional conduct, equality and discrimination, duty of care, confidentiality, transparency, and openness; integrity means doing what is right. By acting with integrity, each person involved in the running and the operation of the IRCM CIC (IRCM CIC team) reflects positively on the values and international reputation of the IRCM CIC and the Coaching and Mentoring Industry. This Code of Conduct helps guide us, and as each member of the IRCM CIC team is an ambassador for both the IRCM CIC and the Coaching and Mentoring Industry, this Code defines how the IRCM CIC team should conduct themselves.
Who Must Follow the Code of Conduct?
The IRCM CIC Code of Conduct applies to the IRCM CIC team, whether Director, member of the Leadership Team, or a Team member. The IRCM CIC is an international organisation which is registered in the United Kingdom. As such, each member of the IRCM CIC team involved is subject to both the IRCM CIC Code of Conduct and the laws of the United Kingdom. Each member of the IRCM CIC team must follow the IRCM CIC Code of Conduct, the laws of the United Kingdom, the laws of the country in which they reside; act with integrity, transparency and honesty in all matters; and be accountable for their and the IRCM’s actions and activities.
