Online via MS Teams

For over 22 years, the VCO has focused on professionals professionally involved in Ethics, Integrity and Compliance. Once originated from the Financial sector but nowadays no longer sector-specific.

Driven by many factors, the VCO is also changing. And grow to the next “level” where we share core values as a community that are contained in a Code of Professional Conduct. A Professional Code that serves as the basis for new professional competence profiles, a central registry, advocacy and other relevant topics.

The Professionalization Job Task Force has drafted a Draft Professional Code where we need your input. Finally, you as a member, stakeholder or other interested party also benefit from a clear, workable and strong Code of Professional Conduct that exudes confidence. So your opinion matters!

You will find the Code here.

We hereby cordially invite you to participate in one of the ‘Teams live’ consultations that will be held starting Oct. 31. Of course, you can also respond in writing Register here for one of the following dates:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 1 from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. for members
  • Wednesday, Nov. 8 from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. for members
  • Wednesday, Nov. 22 from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Nov. 22 from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. for those who could not attend earlier


How to proceed after consultation?

After the consultation rounds, your feedback will be processed. The final Professional Code will be presented at the VCO’s ALV in January. The AGM will be held before the New Year’s Meeting on Jan. 18. In it, we also tell you more about the next steps.

Do you have any questions or comments now? Feel free to send them to . We look forward to your feedback, in the live sessions or in writing!
