  • Codes of conduct have become the norm for public companies. Stock exchanges mandate them as a corporate governance requirement. Pursuant to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, public companies must disclose whether or not they have a code of ethics for their principal executive, financial and accounting officers and must disclose amendments and waivers to this code of ethics on a Form 8-K or on their websites.
