The Association of Authors' Agents (UK) and the Australian Literary Agents' Assocation also have codes of ethics.

These are hardly carved in stone, though. They're strictly voluntary and policed by the organizations themselves, and agents who aren't members of the organizations don't have to follow them. There's no body that provides overall oversight or licensing for agents--which is why it's so easy for unqualified people to set up literary agencies.
