FIDIC Code of Ethics

The International Federation of Consulting Engineers recognises that the work of the consulting engineering industry is critical to the achievement of sustainable development of society and the environment. To be fully effective not only must engineers constantly improve their knowledge and skills, but also society must respect the integrity and trust the judgement of members of the profession and remunerate them fairly. All member associations of FIDIC subscribe to and believe that the following principles are fundamental to the behaviour of their members if society is to have that necessary confidence in its advisors.

Responsibility to society and the consulting industry
The consulting engineer shall: - Accept the responsibility of the consulting industry to society. - Seek solutions that are compatible with the principles of sustainable development. - At all times uphold the dignity, standing and reputation of the consulting industry.

The consulting engineer shall: - Maintain knowledge and skills at levels consistent with development in technology, legislation and management, and apply due skill, care and diligence in the services rendered to the client. - Perform services only when competent to perform them.

The consulting engineer shall: - Act at all times in the legitimate interest of the client and provide all services with integrity and faithfulness.

The consulting engineer shall:

Not take over the work of another consulting engineer before notifying the consulting engineer in question. judgement or decision. already appointed for a specific work.Promote the concept of “Quality-Based Selection” (QBS). . have become a major concern. .Inform the client of any potential conflict of interest that might arise in the performance of services to the client. . . .Neither offer nor accept remuneration of any kind which in perception or in effect either a) seeks to influence the process of selection or compensation of consulting engineers and/or their clients or b) seeks to affect the consulting engineer’s impartial judgement. .Co-operate fully with any legitimately constituted investigative body which makes inquiry into the administration of any contract for services or construction.org/node/743#sthash.See more at: http://fidic.Neither carelessly nor intentionally do anything to injure the reputation or business of others.7c2EkcEb. behave in accordance with appropriate conduct and courtesy.

individuals can only be held accountable for circumstances they can control. and will actively limit their ability to serve their communities. including consulting engineers. the amount of resources needed to assist accident victims to deal with personal difficulties (sometimes for the remainder of a lifetime). in an ill considered manner. Currently the impatience of legislators looking for improvement in safety and the burden of trauma management. into great difficulties. The circumstances surrounding accidents have been put into a criminal context. Rationale The vast resources devoted to the management of accident-induced events could be directed into better practice. the objective of safety can be realised with more flexibility than under coercion. unfortunately. systems designed to achieve optimum site safety are more likely to succeed if they set out to induce change for the better rather than to coerce such change. attempting to coerce improvement. In the complex environment in which engineers work. Whilst it is necessary to deal with this problem. Policy Whilst it is recognised that there are already in existence national laws in various jurisdictions which would cut across the statements made above. First. FIDIC recommends that its Member Associations work to establish logical systems for the establishment and maintenance of appropriately safe working practices at workplaces. and the loss of output which inevitably flows from accidents. Just as there is no such thing as a clear boundary between “safe” and “unsafe”. Second. Given these difficulties. nevertheless. matching responsibility with the control needed for its acceptance has proved extremely difficult. There are two critical matters which should be central to a system for creating and maintaining site safety. so that employers and their employees can be found guilty of the crime of not providing a safe workplace. to the benefit of communities served by engineers. if private initiative is timely.face. This responsibility can draw engineers. there probably can be no clear matching of control and responsibility. in an absolute sense. has led to an emphasis on coercion. the system must recognise that there is no process that can be termed “safe”. where many parties are drawn into co-operative efforts to achieve a desired outcome. This trend will not serve engineers well. developed in a non-adversarial environment. . mainly politically driven. The concern is real and must be addressed. recent attempts in some countries have been. However. All that can be aimed for is a process that is as safe as the resources devoted to it will allow.
