Code of Conduct
Through the Code of Conduct, member companies undertake to establish rules for debt collection services that in some cases go beyond the statutory requirements. By doing this they aim to meet their responsibilities within the debt collection sector.
The Code of Conduct was unanimously adopted at the AGM.

Kirsten Pedd was the driving force behind its development.
