Geoethics is now included in the Professional Ethics Regulations of the Chamber of Geological Engineers of Turkey

IAPG-Turkey informs that the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects - Chamber of Geological Engineers prepared its Professional Ethics Regulations that was published in the Official Gazette of Turkey.

The purpose of this regulation is:
  • To increase the quality and reliability of the professional work of geological engineers.
  • To identify accepted behaviors in geological engineering practices and to promote  excellence.
  • To raise the standards of professional practices.
  • To regulate the minimum ethical principles that the members of the profession must obey and responsibilities towards the society, nature, profession, colleagues, the real or legal persons they serve, the Chamber of Geological Engineers and themselves as individuals.
This important document for the Turkish geological community explicitly mentions geoethics and contains many references to geoethical values as expressed in the Cape Town Statement on Geoethics. 

The Chamber of the Geological Engineers (JMO) of Turkey has a Geoethics Board that is recognized as IAPG-Turkey, and members of the Board are co-coordinators of our national section in Turkey.
