PACP Code of Ethics

NASSCO sets forth this Code of Professional Ethics to guide the professional and personal conduct of its certification holders.

PACP certification holders shall:

  1. Support the implementation of, and encourage compliance with, PACP standards and procedures for the effective assessment of Pipelines, Manholes and Laterals including proper use of PACP certification numbers.
  2. Perform their duties with integrity, objectivity, due diligence and professional care, in accordance with professional standards.
  3. Serve in the interest of customers in a lawful manner, while maintaining high standards of conduct and character, and not discrediting the profession or the Association.
  4. Maintain the highest level of competency in PACP standards, and agree to undertake only those activities they can reasonably expect to complete with the necessary skills, knowledge and competence.
  5. Maintain PACP certification by completing the required 3 year recertification program as prescribed by NASSCO.

Failure to comply with this Code of Professional Ethics can result in an investigation into a certification holder's conduct and, ultimately, in revocation of certification.
