As an affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Colorado Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics relies on the Academy and its credentialing agency, the Commission on Dietetic Registration to provide the highest standard of care for our communities. Because community safety is an essential aspect of our profession, we follow the Academy Code of Ethics that provides guidance to dietetics practitioners in their professional practice and conduct.
The Code of Ethics Task Force reviewed and revised the 1999 Code of Ethics in March 2009. The Academy Board of Directors, Commission on Dietetic Registration and House of Delegates approved the revised Code in May 2009. The 2009 Code of Ethics was published in the August 2009 Journal of the American Dietetic Association, now Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, (pages 1461-1467). The 2009 Code is in effect as of January 1, 2010 and the 1999 version of the code is no longer valid.
