There are seven NSPS professional canons. Whether we are members of NSPS or not, measuring ourselves against these canons is a great way to evaluate where we have room for improvement. Preeminent in the canons is the requirement to be mindful of the public’s interest and to do no harm not just to clients but all of the public in carrying out one’s professional services.


Objective 1
Understand what conduct that is detrimental to the public so that the surveyor can learn to be discreet and judicious in his or her actions
Objective 2
Understand what the intent of the Canons are so that the surveyor can do his or her inventory of behaviors to determine if any corrective action is required
