- Applying the ACS code of ethics
- Burmeister, Oliver K.
- The IT professional unlike professionals in other disciplines does not have to abide by the strictures of a professional society. In Australia the professional IT association has a Code of Ethics that, while easily accessible, needs clarification to apply it in the real world. Though the ACS code is distinctly Australian in the way it has been formulated, it sits easily within the general tenets espoused by similar associations in other countries. Although cultural issues have influenced the moral philosophy of the ACS code, there are lessons from other countries that apply in the Australian context. Interpreting the code and applying it to one’s situation can be facilitated through seeing how others have applied the code and through understanding its underlying tenets.
