Member Input Sought on Code of Ethics Changes

The NSPE Board of Ethical Review is considering changes to the Society’s Code of Ethics and wants to hear your suggestions.

The Board is specifically interested in suggested changes that reflect technology’s impact on engineering ethics and professional engineering practice, as well as other current professional practice issues.

NSPE’s Code of Ethics has evolved over the years. One of the first references to the NSPE Code was in the May 1935 issue ofThe American Engineer. The Code was most recently amended in 2006, when a provision was added stating that engineers are obligated to follow the principles of sustainable development.

Please send your suggestions for possible changes to the NSPE Code of Ethics to legal@nspe.org. Comments must be received by April 19.

As we move towards delivering projects with pure digital information, engineers need to be just as professionally responsible for the digital information they create, which others rely on, as we currently expect them to be responsible for physically signed and sealed analog documents.
