The Alabama Business and Nonprofit Entities Code (ABNEC) is a business code of conduct that covers all legal entities in the state of Alabama, including corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, and, other business structures.

The ABNC can be used by any entity covered by the code to adopt its own internal rules or policies that apply to employees and directors as well as shareholders or members. These rules should be reviewed annually by an ethics committee composed of at least three people who are not involved in the operation of any part of a corporation or LLC operating under this law.

The Alabama Business and Nonprofit Entities Code is a statute that was written to protect the rights of people who buy, sell, or trade with Alabama businesses. It also gives protection to non-profits by ensuring that they are not liable for their actions unless they prove that it was negligence on their part (which is rare).

This means that if something goes wrong during your transaction with an individual or entity (for example: if they try to cheat you out of money), there will be no legal action taken against them because they were within their rights when dealing with another person/entity (like yourself).
