Code of Ethics

The "Code of Conduct" is essentially a set of professional ethical standards regulating the relationship of Members with Academy of Project Engineering and with clients, employers, employees, fellow members of the group and the public generally.

The maintenance of ethical standards is the collective concern of the Academy as well as all members of the profession. The ideal situation, of course, would be that the maintenance of ethical standards at individual member level is so self-evident that its further mention need not be made. However, the human nature being what it is, a man may often place his personal gain above service. Therefore, it is necessary to keep on reinforcing the idea of keeping up and observing the highest ethical standards.

For the success of the profession of multi discipline project engineering a self-imposed Code of Ethics is essential to command the respect and confidence of the industry.

Fundamental Principles
In order to achieve the objectives of the Multi Discipline Project engineering profession, professional engineers have to observe a number of prerequisites or fundamental principles. The fundamental principles are :-

Integrity : A professional engineer should be straightforward and honest in performing professional services.

Objectivity : A professional engineer should be fair and should not allow prejudice or bias, conflict of interest or influence of others to override objectivity.

Professional Competence and Due Care : A professional engineer should perform professional services with due care, competence and diligence and has a continuing duty to maintain professional knowledge and skill at a level required to ensure that a client or employer receives the advantage of competent professional service based on up-to-date developments in practice, and techniques.

Confidentiality : A professional engineer should respect the confidentiality of information acquired during the course of performing professional services and should not use or disclose any such information without proper and specific authority or unless there is a legal or professional right or duty to disclose.

Professional Behaviour : A professional engineer should act in a manner consistent with the good reputation of the profession and refrain from any conduct which might bring discredit to the profession.

The over-riding motto has been pride of service in preference to personal gain. Applying scientific audit techniques to ensure material correctness to a large extent.
