For 60 years the MRS Code of Conduct has been the foundation of good research. We clearly and fairly set out the professional standards that all research practitioners must maintain.

The comprehensive MRS Code covers research from the inception to design and from execution to use. It is relevant for market, social and opinion research. Our Regulations cover legal requirements and how these apply to research.

MRS members must adhere to the MRS Code of Conduct, Regulations and the associated disciplinary procedures. The Code, drawn up by researchers for researchers, helps to protect providers, buyers and respondents. It safeguards standards, promotes confidence and champions professionalism.
