The ACFID Code of Conduct is owned by ACFID members, and its purpose reflects their commitment to improve international development and humanitarian action outcomes and increase stakeholder trust by enhancing their transparency, accountability and effectiveness. 

The Code is periodically reviewed to ensure it continues to reflect good practice and the needs of ACFID and its members. In June 2022, ACFID initiated the current review of the Code. The 2022-23 Review will consider whether the Code and the associated Quality Assurance Framework remain relevant, coherent, useful and credible to members and external stakeholders.
