  2. changing the Equality principle to - Members must actively promote equality and diversity and work towards the removal of barriers to personal achievement resulting from prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination;
  3. emphasising that career development activities and services covered by this code are regardless of how they are delivered, e.g. face to face, in groups, by telephone or web-based and
  4. the inclusion of legislation relating to each principle.
