The Rulebook is a valuable asset to our members and students, and to firms. It consists of the Royal Charter, bye-laws and Council Regulations, the Regulations, and the Code of Ethics and Conduct.

All new students and members are asked to sign an undertaking that they will comply with ACCA’s Regulations and Code of Ethics and Conduct, which exist within ACCA’s governance framework of its Royal Charter and bye-laws.

The Rulebook is updated regularly, in line with regulatory developments and policy requirements. You can view the latest version of the Rulebook below and refer to the Rulebook commentary for an overview of the most recent changes. Previous versions of the Rulebook and commentaries on Rulebook changes are stored in the Rulebook archive.
