The Auditor’s Code
he auditor maintains and practices a code of conduct toward his preclear known as the “Auditor’s Code.” This is a doctrine of strictly followed rules to ensure a preclear gets the greatest possible gain from auditing, and was evolved over many years of observation. It is the code of ethics which governs an auditor’s actions.
Auditing is most successful when the auditor acts toward the preclear according to the Code. The auditor, for example, never tells the preclear what he should think about himself, nor offers his opinion about what is being audited. A goal of auditing is to restore the preclear’s certainty in his own viewpoint; evaluation for the preclear only inhibits attainment of this goal. Hence, its prohibition by the Code.
The qualities instilled by the Auditor’s Code are essentially those held to be the best in people. An auditor shows his preclear kindness, affinity, patience and other such virtues, to assist the preclear in confronting areas of upset or difficulty.
