The International Ethics Standards Coalition (IESC) published the International Ethics Standards (IES), a set of ethical principles produced for practitioners in the land, property, construction, infrastructure and related professions. It is the first time that a global set of high-level ethical principles has been produced for professionals operating the property industry.
The IES have been written by a group of independent industry leaders, international ethics and compliance expert appointed by Trustees of the IESC. Group members include prominent real estate representatives from Russia, China, France, Germany, Brazil, Japan, the USA, Malaysia, Canada and the UK. The publication of the standards, promotes and strengthens the ethical conduct of professionals practice for the benefit of clients, third parties, current and future stakeholders and the public.
According to IESC, the International Ethics Standards (IES) will serve as anchor to appropriate behaviours. Hence, adaptation of IES will assist to ensure consistency and clarity irrespective of changing factors, such as the state of the economy or business practices in different marketplaces.
