APPENDIX II

AIA CODE OF ETHICS AND PROFESSIONAL
CONDUCT: 1997

PREAMBLE
Members of The American Institute of Architects are dedicated to the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and competence. This Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct states guidelines for the conduct of Members in fulfilling those obligations. The Code is arranged in three tiers of statements: Canons, Ethical Standards, and Rules of Conduct:
Canons are broad principles of conduct.
Ethical Standards (E.S.) are more specific goals toward which Members should aspire in professional performance and behavior.
Rules of Conduct (Rule) are mandatory; violation of a rule is grounds for disciplinary action by the Institute. Rules of Conduct, in some instances, implement more than one Canon or Ethical Standard.
The Code applies to the professional activities of all classes of Members, wherever they occur. It addresses responsibilities to the public, which the profession serves and enriches; to the clients and users of architecture and in the building industries, who help to shape the built environment; and to the art and science of architecture, that continuum of knowledge and creation which is the heritage and legacy of the profession.Commentary is provided for some of the Rules of Conduct. That commentary is meant to clarify or elaborate the intent of the Rule. The commentary is not part of the Code. Enforcement will be determined by application of the Rules of Conduct alone; the commentary will assist those seeking to conform their conduct to the Code and those charged with its enforcement.
STATEMENT IN COMPLIANCE WITH
THE 1990 CONSENT DECREE

2. providing discounts; or
3. providing free services.
