Tip of the Week – APC RICS Rules of Conduct and Ethics

“Starting Out or Just Finishing? The RICS Rules of Conduct and Professional Ethics are important for ANY part of your Surveying Career” Jon Lever FRICSAPCeye+RoCEthics

In this Series of 3 parts Jon will discuss an element of Rules or Ethics and how he would question it at the APC Final Assessment.

This Week:

Introduction to  RICS 5 Global Ethical Standards

This is a large subject as the 5 Global Standards contain a fair amount of information and whether the APC Assessors ask you to list them or discuss an individual Global Standard it isimportant to know them inside out for your APC assessment and also going forward through the rest of your career.

These are not something that you just learn for your assessment and then forget, but something that you should / will take with you through the rest of your surveying career.

You can read the detail here:  http://www.rics.org/ethicsRICS ethics

But remember Ethics is not the easiest of subjects and not often immediately straight forward, but requires an element of interpretation and of course a good moral compass.

Next week – Top tip  2 in this series of 3.
Jon will  review the first ethical standard –  “Always Provide a High Standard of Service”  For the complete document
If you can’t wait email and we will send you the complete document.
