All chemical professionals (including students) have ethical obligations to the public, to their colleagues, and to science. These rules of engagement are laid out in the Chemical Professional's Code of Conduct – read and display it proudly! If you are in academe (student, staff, or faculty), the Academic Professional Guidelines (APG) is your roadmap to recommended practices. If you're employed by a corporate or government entity, your roadmap is the Professional Employment Guidelines (PEG). These three documents are regularly reviewed and revised by the ACS Committee on Economic & Professional Affairs, to incorporate current trends and changing policies and practices.
