As a member of the National Society of Professional Surveyors I came across the following items from their web site.
Surveyor’s Creed and Canons As a Professional Surveyor
I dedicate my professional knowledge and skills to the advancement and betterment of human welfare.
I pledge: To give the utmost of performance; To participate in none but honest enterprise; To live and work according to the laws of humankind and the highest standards of professional conduct; To place service before profit, honor and standing of the profession before personal advantage, and the public welfare above all other considerations; In humility and with need for Divine Guidance, I make this pledge.
Canon 1. A Professional Surveyor should refrain from conduct that is detrimental to the public.
Canon 2. A Professional Surveyor should abide by the rules and regulations pertaining to the practice of surveying within the licensing jurisdiction.
Canon 3. A Professional Surveyor should accept assignments only in one’s area of professional competence and expertise.
Canon 4. A Professional Surveyor should develop and communicate a professional analysis and opinion without bias or personal interest.
