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.
