Universal Code of Conduct

The Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines revisions committee is requesting comments regarding the Revised Enforcement Draft Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC).


This review period will be open from 8 September 2022 until 8 October 2022.


The committee collaborated to revise these draft guidelines based on input gathered from the community discussion period from May through July, as well as the community vote that concluded in March 2022.

The revisions are focused on the following four areas:

  • To identify the type, purpose, and applicability of the UCoC training;
  • To simplify the language for more accessible translation and comprehension by non-experts;
  • To explore the concept of affirmation, including its pros and cons;
  • To review the balancing of the privacy of the accuser and the accused

The committee requests comments and suggestions about these revisions by 8 October 2022. From there, the revisions committee anticipates further revising the guidelines based on community input.
