CODE OF ETHICS

Ethics?

1. It means something MORE THAN "law" and "morals"

2. It carries an additional connotation of "RIGHTNESS"

3. The code = a) a statement of principles of 'rightness' b) in a broad scope and with enough details c) to deduce himself the course of his own professional conduct

4. The ESSENCE of all professional conduct: a person must be WORTHY through his conduct
- based on the trust placed on him

The question right now is, what is moral? Coming soon....
