From The Academy of Design Profes­sionals: Designers have certain funda­mental oblig­a­tions to society, to clients, to the profes­sion, and to peers and colleagues. The Code of Profes­sional Conduct states guide­lines and rules for the conduct of design profes­sionals in fulfilling those oblig­a­tions. The Code is arranged in three tiers of state­ments: Canons, Ethical Stan­dards, and Rules of Conduct. · Go to Code of Profes­sional Conduct for designers →
