    Professional code:

    A complete professional code enumerates both the obligations and the privileges of the vocation or association they are attached to. The positive rights and duties of the professional group are directly or indirectly related to the satisfaction of the needs which ought to be promoted by the members of the group. Professionals of all descriptions have a firm obligation to satisfy the needs, to promote the interests and to respect the values of their clientele, as the fulfillment of this duty constitutes the basis of their privileged position in society.
