On 22 June 2005 the Master of the Rolls & Chairman of the Civil Justice Committee approved a Code of Practice for Experts.
The code replaced The Academy's existing Code of Practice.
The Academy and the EWI agreed this ‘joint’ Code. Each body has adopted it so that it applies to members of either organisation. This The Academy believes is a positive step towards the raising and policing of higher standards for ALL Experts.
The current Code of Practice for Experts was endorsed on 22nd June 2005 by Rt Hon Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers Master of the Rolls & Chairman of the Civil Justice Council.
On 26th June 2006 the Code of Practice for Experts was endorsed by the Master of the Rolls, Rt Hon Sir Anthony Clarke and the President of the Queens Bench Division, Rt Hon Sir Igor Judge for use in Criminal proceedings.
