NEW YORK (AP) -- The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science has announced its first code of conduct for its more than 8,400 members.

Film academy chief executive Dawn Hudson introduced the new rules to members in an email Wednesday. In October, the academy broke with tradition and made Harvey Weinstein just the second person ever expelled from the Oscars' governing body.

The new code of conduct stipulates that the academy is no place for "people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates standards of decency."

The academy's board may now suspend or expel those who violate the code of conduct or who "compromise the integrity" of the academy.

The standards of conduct were drafted by a task force launched by the academy in October.
