Coordinate Metrology Society Code of Ethics

Honesty, justice, and courtesy form a moral philosophy which, associated with mutual interest among people, should be the principles on which ethics are founded.  Each person who is engaged in the use, development, and improvement of coordinate metrology should accept those principles as a set of dynamic guides for conduct and a way of life rather than merely for passive observance. It is an inherent obligation to apply oneself to one's profession with all diligence and in so doing to be guided by this Code of Ethics.
