ethics

 

An architect's first responsibility is to serve the communities for which s/he works. In today's societies, globalisation is expanding and the exchange of architectural professional services is ever broader and more diverse. Architects are more often called upon the serve the interests of communities far removed from their home and native culture.

 

Because we are convinced that universal professional standards are essential, the UIA has developed a set of norms related to professional ethics, competency and training that allow for respectful professional mobility and guarantee the interests of the communities served.

 

These norms are set out in the UIA Accord on recommended international standards of professionalism in architectural practice.
