Fannie Mae has an employee Code of Conduct, adopted by our Board of Directors, that gives our employees clear guidelines for how to do business the right way. With a number of guiding principles, the Code outlines employees' responsibilities for ethical and lawful conduct. Employees commit to their compliance with the Code each year.
On July 15, 2011, the Board of Directors of Fannie Mae approved revisions to Our Code of Conduct. As part of these revisions, we (1) updated the descriptions of some of the requirements and examples in the Code, and (2) aligned the language in the Code with our current corporate priorities.
