Foire aux questions
1.1 The AIA Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct
- Supplanting or replacing another architect on a project. Historically, it was considered unprofessional to have any business contact with another architect's client. The AIA code of ethics does not prohibit such conduct.
- Advertising. The AIA's code does not prohibit advertising of professional services. The code does contain provisions that could be violated in the context of advertising, however, such as making false statements or failing to properly credit other participants in a project.
- Contracting to do construction. The 1909 code prohibited engaging in any of the “building trades” or guaranteeing any estimate. These restrictions, which are incompatible with design-build, disappeared by the 1970s.
- Determinations of law. Prior versions of the code did not shy away from provisions that required legal analysis. For example, prior to 1997 the code made explicit reference to copyright. Currently, however, in order for any legal or regulatory violation to be taken into account in application of the AIA's code of ethics, the legal or regulatory determination must have been made by an appropriate authority.
- Canons are broad principles of conduct. The code of ethics primarily addresses responsibilities that architects and other AIA members have to others. Except for Canon I, General Obligations, the canons reflect the categories of those to whom duties are owed: the public, clients, the architectural and related professions, colleagues (as individuals), and the environment.
- Ethical Standards are more specific goals toward which members should aspire in professional performance and behavior.
- Rules of Conduct are mandatory. Violation of a Rule of Conduct is grounds for disciplinary action by the Institute. Rules of Conduct, in some instances, implement more than one Canon or Ethical Standard.
