Ethical Guidelines

As a member of the AES you are committing to

  1. abide by the AES Code of Ethical Conduct, and
  2. to support the AES Guidelines for the Ethical Conduct of Evaluations.

About the guidelines

The original guidelines were endorsed by the Board of the AES in December 1997, following a process of development and consultation with members over a number of years. Since early 1998 they have served as a training resource, and have been used by many organisations to inform their evaluation policies.

In December 2000 the guidelines were incorporated into the AES Code of Ethics which applies to all AES members. Updated versions of the Code and Guidelines were endorsed in 2013.

A printed copy of the Guidelines for the Ethical Conduct of Evaluations has been provided to all members.
Additional copies are available at $11 each (incl. GST). Overseas orders are $10.

Please note these documents were last revised, and endorsed by the AES Board, in July 2013.
