Code of Ethics

The AIA has a long history of requiring that its Members adhere to the highest ethical standards.

The AIA Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

The preamble to the AIA’s Code of Ethics describes the principles upon which the Code of Ethics is based and includes a brief summary of the document. It provides that “Members of The American Institute of Architects are dedicated to the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and competence.  This Code states guidelines for the conduct of Members in fulfilling those obligations”. The Code is arranged in three tiers of statements: Canons, Ethical Standards, and Rules of Conduct.
