From Philip Cassar - Chairman, ISPSS - Chamber of Commerce
Please refer to your article entitled "No lSP code of practice" which appeared on issue No: 224 dated Wednesday 20 February 2002.
I wish to point out that an official request for the formulation of
a code of practice or code of ethics, was made by the MCA to the ISPSS
of the Chamber of Commerce in June last year. Since then, several drafts
were exchanged between the ISP's themselves and also between the ISP
sub-section of the Chamber and the MCA. It is worth noting, that the
ISPSS of the Chamber of Commerce had been working on a Code of Ethics
for the Section members much before it became a legal requirement. At
that stage it was agreed with the MCA that it would be in everyone's
interest if this would be the same, as the one required by the MCA.
