Code of Professional Conduct

GCR has established and implemented policies, procedures, and internal controls in order to ensure that we conduct our business with objectivity, integrity, transparency and in line with the King III report on corporate governance.

The GCR Code of Professional Conduct, which is a key component of the Code of Ethics, reflects the IOSCO principals for Credit Rating Agencies.  The current version of each of GCR’s policies that represent GCR’s Code of Ethics is available below.

All Investing Public, Issuers, market participants and the public are welcome to have a voice regarding GCR’s Ratings and its policies, including raising questions, concerns, or complaints.
