The Institute of Fundraising has added a checklist to the front of each of its codes of practice to make them simpler to follow.
The checklists, which have been added to all of its 28 codes, are designed to make it easier for charities to find information.
Louise Richards, director of policy and campaigns at the institute, said the checklists would help people to use the codes.
"These checklists are not intended as a substitute for reading our codes in full, but as an additional guide to help people digest the codes," she said.
"In this environment of increased scrutiny of fundraising methods and practices, it is more important than ever that fundraisers properly interpret and keep to our codes."
The codes and new checklists, which cover aspects of fundraising from legacies to data protection, are available on the institute's website.
