AIFWS, Code of Ethics

Preamble: General Principles

A code of ethics is a personal statement of belief. It therefore seems appropriate that it should be written in first person singular, which makes it a personal code and also makes it voluntary rather than a set of rules imposed by an institution on its members. The latter is certainly appropriate for an employing institution such as a company or a university. The following code addresses matters involving the relationships of each agriculturist in the AIFWS to colleagues, to the Society, to students, to the employer, to the public, to the creatures and materials of the environment, but perhaps most important, to the person within. For the Foundation and Society, it represents a suggestion to its Members of matters to be considered. It should not in itself be considered to be coercive. However, the Society must reserve the right to consider removing from its rolls persons who have committed fraud or other grievous actions with immediate effect without any prior notice.
