Institutional Document | December 2019

This paper proposes amendments to the Code of Conduct for Directors, Alternate Directors and the President of the Asian Development Bank, and related procedures and guidelines.

The Code of Conduct was adopted by the Board of Directors of ADB in 2006 to set forth principles and ethical standards for the Directors, Alternate Directors, Temporary Alternate Directors, and the President.  

From July 2018, a subgroup of Board Directors reviewed  the Code of Conduct, the Ethics Committee and Procedures, and associated Guidelines, and recommended revisions to bring the standards and procedures in line with best practice.  Such amendments take effect 30 days after the date of approval.
