The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) have released a new Code of Ethical Practice which supercedes the previous code that was published in July 2009. Formerly, the Code contained 4 key principles of professional practice including- Rights, Relationships, Personal Responsibilities and Professional Standards. The new Code however includes a 5th principle of Safe Working Practice.

In addition to the above changes, the new Code of Practice further clarifies the role of Fitness Professionals and REPs in developing and maintaining a health and fitness sector that members of the public can have the utmost trust and confidence in.

You can review the latest version of the code by searching for “REPs Code of Conduct”.
