Code of Ethics

Code of Ethics - Principles of Professional Behaviour

A high standard of professional conduct in all orthoptists is important both for the patient and the high regard of the profession. 
This code of ethics offers guidelines for the practice of the orthoptics in Europe and globally. 
The document may be used to supplement existing national codes or assist in establishing such codes where they do not already exist. 
It is not intended that this should replace any national code of conduct and orthoptists must primarily comply with the rules of the country in which they practice.
