How do I reference the code of ethics for social work using APA (7th ed.) style?

Answer

In text (first cite): 
British Association of Social Workers (BASW, 2021) states that...

OR

...(British Association of Social Workers (BASW), 2021).

In text (second and subsequent cites): 
​BASW (2021)...

OR

...(BASW, 2021).

 

If you are referring to a specific section of the code you will need to include the section number, for example:

In text (first cite): 
​British Association of Social Workers (BASW, 2021, 2.1)... 

OR

...(British Association of Social Workers (BASW), 2021, 2.1).

In text (second and subsequent cites): 
BASW (2021, 2.1)...

OR

...(BASW, 2021, 2.1).

In the reference list:

British Association of Social Workers. (2021). The BASW code of ethics for social work. 

OR

British Association of Social Workers. (2021). The BASW code of ethics for social work. https://new.basw.co.uk/sites/default/files/resources/basw_code_of_ethics_-_2021.pdf
