Code of Ethics
On 6 October 2004, the FIFA Executive Committee approved a Code of Ethics drawn up by the Committee for Ethics and Fair Play in accordance with Art. 7 of the FIFA, thereby fulfilling an obligation stated in the new FIFA Statutes that took effect on 1 January 2004.
On 15 September 2006, the Executive Committee approved the revision of the Code of Ethics. This revision was prompted by a decision of the FIFA Congress passed in Munich in June 2006, requiring the creation of a new and independent Ethics Committee to constitute FIFA's third judicial body.xxx

FIFA Disciplinary Code
FIFA's judicial bodies are its Disciplinary Committee and its Appeal Committee, as per article 43 of the FIFA statutes. Their functions are laid out in the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC). Members of these committees are appointed by the FIFA Executive Committee for renewable four year periods. Both committees are presided over by a Chairman and Deputy Chairman, both of whom have legal backgrounds. In keeping with FIFA's policy regarding the separation of decision-making powers, members of these committees reach their decisions entirely independently. They receive no instructions from any other body, and may not sit on any other FIFA committee.
