Ethics Special Interest Network

CEPIS Professional Ethics Special Interest Network


Adhering to professional ethical conduct is a defining aspect of any profession. CEPIS is committed to developing a more consistent approach to ethics in the ICT profession. In 2016 CEPIS established a new Special Interest Network (SIN) dedicated to professional ethics, which replaced the discontinued Professionalism Task Force.

Previous ethics-related activities include:

CEPIS has also created an Ethics Repository which serves as a reference point to enable a long-term assessment of commonalities among Codes of Ethics, Codes of Conduct, and Codes of Practice.

The SIN’s work focuses on developing European Ethical Guidelines, in order to complete the European Framework for the ICT profession with an overarching metamodel on ethical principles.
