NLP Unified Code of Ethics

Main global NLP Associations have agreed on a shared Code of Ethics


On April 2022 the NLP Unified Code of Ethics was officially launched. It has been created by the Association for NLP (ANLP), the International Association for Neuro-Linguistic Programming (IANLP), International NLP Trainers Association (INLPTA) and the International Association of NLP Institutes (IN).

This Unified Code of Ethics represents great teamwork, flexible and dynamic decision-making between these Associations.  We created this on the basis of mutual respect, modelling of the NLP presuppositions and a cohesive desire to bring unity, professionalism and even more credibility to our field.

Our aims are:

  • Raise the standards, practice and delivery of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Training and Professional NLP services around the world

  • Continue to increase the credibility of NLP by demonstrating and supporting best practice

  • Raise awareness of the positive benefits of NLP

  • Support academic research in NLP and collect and collate narrative evidence which supports the effectiveness of NLP in practice
