Edifice Guild Code of Ethics

We are the artisans, we need to unite, we need our voices to be heard and to preserve our future!!!

Behaving ethically is at the heart of what it means to be an Edifice Guild member; it distinguishes professionals from others in the marketplace.

We’ve created a clear and streamlined set of professional and ethical standards to guide our members and ensure that all those we deal with have confidence in us.

 All members must demonstrate that they:

  • Act with integrity,
  • Always provide a high standard of service,
  • Act in a way that promotes trust in your profession,
  • Treat others with respect,
  • Take responsibility,
  • Act with integrity,
  • Being trustworthy in all that you do.

Being open and transparent in the way you work. Sharing appropriate and necessary information with your clients and/or others to conduct business and doing so in a way so they can understand that information.

Respecting confidential information of your clients and potential clients.

Don’t divulge information to others unless it is appropriate to do so.

Not taking advantage of a client, a colleague, a third party or anyone to whom you owe a duty of care.

Not allowing bias, conflict of interest or the undue influence of others to override your professional or business judgements and obligations.

Making clear to all interested parties where a conflict of interest, or even a potential conflict of interest, arises between you and your client.

Acting consistently in the public interest when it comes to making decisions or providing advice.
