Yes. Members should be committed to:

  • Regard ourselves as members of a vital and ethical profession;
  • Conduct both our personal and official lives so as to inspire the confidence of the public;
  • Regard it as our duty to avail ourselves of every opportunity to learn more about our profession;
  • Encourage and support professional standards for fire, arson, and explosion investigators;
  • Avoid alliances with those whose practices are inconsistent with an honest and unbiased investigation; and
  • Bear in mind that we are first and foremost truth-seekers, not case makers; it is our duty to protect the innocent and hold accountable those responsible for loss by fire or explosion.
