" Ethics and Professional Conduct"

Presented by Dr Lloyd Pilgrim, Senior Lecturer | Surveying Program Convener, The University of Newcastle, Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment


This webinar was presented live on Tuesday, 27 October 2020


Surveying is fundamental to the provision, delimitation, maintenance and enhancement of the economic, physical and social environments that support society. Surveyors therefore have an ethical responsibility that extends to the public, in addition to their clients, employers, employees and peers.  This presentation will look at ethics in a professional setting, discuss the ethical requirements of registered surveyors, and set out a frame work of ethical values and principles that can be used to guide your professional activities.  The BOSSI Ethics and Code of Conduct documentation will be highlighted, along with a number of case studies.

He is a member of the Institution of Surveyors NSW (ISNSW), a previous recipient of the John Haydon Cardew Award from ISNSW and current ISNSW Hunter Manning Group Surveyor of the Year (2020).
