CIMA has adopted the following code of ethics. Parts A and B of this code are based on the IFAC* Code of Ethics, that was developed with the help of input from CIMA and the global accountancy profession. Part C of the Code was developed in cooperation with the American Institute of Certified Public
Accountants (AICPA).The AICPA and CIMA joined together to create a designation for management accountants, the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA). The CGMA designation is designed to elevate management accounting and further emphasize its importance for businesses worldwide. Part C of the Code is designed to provide guidance to all CIMA members around the world who are members in business and professional accountants in business and, those who hold the CGMA credential. When a CGMA is also a member in public practice the CGMA should also comply with the applicable guidance of the CIMA Code of Ethics and apply the most restrictive provisions.
