Cost and Works Accountants Act, 1959

Schedule 2 Part 1 : Professional Misconduct in Relation to Cost Accountants in Practice Requiring Action by a High Court

A cost accountant in practice shall be deemed to be guilty of professional misconduct, if he-

(1) discloses information acquired in the course of his professional engagement to any person other than the client so engaging him, without the consent of such client, or otherwise than as required by any law for the time being in force;

(2) certifies or submits in his name or in the name of his firm a report of an examination of cost accounting and related statements, unless the examination of such statements has been made by him or by a partner or an employee in his firm or by another cost accountant in practice;

(3) permits his name or the name of his firm to be used in connection with an estimate of cost or earnings contingent upon future transactions in a manner which may lead to the belief that he vouches for the accuracy of the forecast;

(4) expresses his opinion on cost or pricing statements of any business or any enterprise in which he, his firm or a partner in his firm has a substantial interest, unless he discloses the interest also in his report;

(5) fails to disclose in a cost or pricing statement a material fact known to him, which is not disclosed in a cost or pricing statement, but disclosure of which is necessary to make such statement not misleading;

(6) fails to report a material mis-statement known to him to appear in a cost or pricing statement with which he is concerned in a professional capacity;

(7) is grossly negligent in the conduct of his professional duties;

(8) fails to obtain sufficient information to warrant the expression of an opinion or make exceptions which are sufficiently material to negate the expression of an opinion;

(9) fails to invite attention to any material departure from the generally accepted procedure of costing and pricing applicable to the circumstances;

(10) fails to keep moneys of his client in a separate banking account or to use such moneys for purposes for which they are intended.
