Code of Professional Conduct
September 27, 2017 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM
Actuaries who practice in the United States and are members of one of the five U.S.-based actuarial organizations are subject to the Code of Professional Conduct. The Code of Professional Conduct sets forth what it means for an actuary to act as a professional. It identifies the responsibilities that actuaries have to the public, to their clients and employers, and to the actuarial profession.
The purpose of the Code of Professional Conduct is to require Actuaries to adhere to the high standards of conduct, practice, and qualifications of the actuarial profession, thereby supporting the actuarial profession in fulfilling its responsibility to the public. An Actuary must be familiar with, and keep current with the Code of Professional Conduct. An Actuary who questions how to apply our Code can obtain guidance. An Actuary who commits a violation of the provisions of the Code of Professional Conduct may be subject to counseling and discipline procedures.
The presenters at this session will provide a timely and important “refresher” on the Code of Professional Conduct. Come to this session so you don’t end up on Law and Order - Special Actuaries Unit.
