I'm studying engineering at uni and have to include an examination of the role of codes and rules of conduct in engineering institutions. Can anybody point me in the direction of where I can find out about their effectiveness in ensuring professional standards of work?

Hi Sean,
You are studying and you want us to do your homework? Surely the point of this assignment is for you to do some independent research? The first part of that research is learning - for yourself - where to look!

Maybe you could re-frame your question? You might want to make a short questionnaire and ask professional engineers how codes of conduct influence their decisions?

and perhaps, you might want to contrast what the codes say about the actions of engineers, compared to what the law has to say

ie do engineers have a duty beyond that to thier client regardless of what the institution membership criteria say

Try looking for publications by John Uff - that should make your assignment a bit more interesting
