2022 Professional Ethics & Conduct (50 minutes)

3:00 pm–3:50 pm ET

# of CPE Credits



North Carolina Professional Ethics and Conduct rules are just one subsection of the set of rules and standards governing North Carolina CPAs. However, the importance of professional ethics merits an in-depth study, because making the right decision every time is hard! Without a solid ethical base, the rules are difficult to apply. The North Carolina Professional Ethics and Conduct rules provide the foundation for examining the standards of ethical conduct. These standards of ethical conduct are not only examined for those CPAs in public practice, but also for CPAs working in industry, government, and education throughout North Carolina. You will examine current trends in ethical behavior, social networking, and fraud. Real-life case studies supplied by North Carolina CPAs that examine those ethical dilemmas most prevalent in the workplace will be discussed. Note—This activity fulfills the state board’s annual minimum 50-minute ethics CPE requirement. The 50-minute ethics activity is required for annual license renewal for North Carolina CPAs and does not qualify one to obtain an original or reciprocal certificate (the NC Accountancy Law course required for certification and reciprocity is an eight-hour program that is also offered by NCACPA, and it satisfies this requirement). If you have questions, please contact the NC State Board of CPA Examiners.


* This course allows CPAs to meet the requirement of 8G.0410 Professional Ethics and Conduct CPE * As part of the annual CPE requirement, all active CPAs shall complete CPE on professional ethics and conduct as set out in 21 NCAC 8G * The North Carolina CPA shall complete a 50-minute course in professional ethics and conduct in either a group-study format (of which a webcast is included) or in a self-study format.
