The COEBO Code or Code of Ethics for Behavioral Organizations is used to ensure that organizations develop and maintain ethical administrative supports to guide their employees toward ethical clinical and educational practices. The COEBO Code began originally as a seven item document created by Jon S. Bailey, PhD, BCBA-D that served as an attestation that all organizations that provide behavior analysis services would agree to follow. Over time the document became a movement rallying behavior analysts from around the world to help spread the word about a Code of Ethics for Behavioral Organizations (COEBO Code).
