Code of practice

HR Glossary

Code of practice

Agreed upon principles within an industry relating to practices, technical requirements, corporate responsibilities or other activities that are designed to regulate and uphold the standard of the profession. These may be established by an industry body or in consultation with government and are a means of self-regulation. Examples of these include the Hippocratic Oath for medical professionals (i.e. “do no harm”) or the “scanning code of practice” implemented by many large Australian retailers.
