It’s time to ‘click the code’

IEMA membership provides assurance of your competence through professional standards, strong governance and code of conduct. 

The standards and governance policies are reviewed each year and we want to make sure you’re signed up to the latest Code of Professional Conduct. 

The code is a framework that sets out how we behave as part of this profession, what others should expect from us and what we can ask of our fellow environment and sustainability professionals. It is backed up by rigorous complaints and discipline processes, so we can effectively investigate reports of unsuitable conduct and take action where necessary. Go to today to explore the code in detail. 

Abiding by the code is a mandatory requirement of all membership levels, so please ensure you have signed up. It’s easy to renew your pledge: 
Step 1: Go to and log in to MyIEMA.  
Step 2: Follow the instructions on the on-screen banner to declare that you agree to abide by the new IEMA Code of Professional Conduct.  
Step 3: That’s it – you’re done. You will need to state that you abide by the Code when you renew your membership each year, but until then you don’t need to do anything further.
