The Code of Ethics of the
Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers, Inc.
It shall be considered professional and consistent with honorable and dignified conduct for you as a Registered Professional Land Surveyor:
A. To hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public in the performance of your duties;
B. To act in professional matters for each employer and clients as a faithful agent or trustee and to avoid conflicts of interest;
C. To build a professional reputation on the merit of your service
D. To issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner;
E. To act in such a manner as to uphold and enhance the honor, dignity and integrity of the profession;
F. To perform services only in the area of your legal and technical competence.
Ethical behavior is not limited to matters covered explicitly in the Code of Ethics. It is based also upon considerations of justice, courtesy, honesty, sincerity and dignity, associated with mutual interests among people and applies to all areas of professional and business activities. A Land Surveyor must apply the principles of ethics to professional activities, and must insist that other members of this and related professions act in an ethical manner. Standards of ethical conduct apply to your daily work to no lesser degree than do the Procedural and Technical Standards.
