The code was introduced by the Property Factors (Scotland) Act 2011 (the Act), which requires Scottish Ministers to prepare a code of conduct setting out minimum standards of practice for registered property factors and related amendments to the Act.. The current code came into force on 1 October 2012 and applies to all registered property factors as defined by section 2 of the Act.

The Act requires that Scottish Ministers must from 'time to time' prepare a draft code which should be published and then consulted upon with such bodies (as considered appropriate) and with the general public.
