  • Dan Forino, PE, CCP, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP – Horizon Engineering Associates, LLP

What does it take for a commissioning provider to act as a faithful agent to their client? Or their employer? Isn’t it enough to promise to behave ethically?

This presentation will provide a review of the NSPE Code of Ethics and a review of how it relates to the practice of commissioning. The intent is to guide the audience in a discussion while outlining the generally accepted ethical principles of engineering practice. We shall review and discuss various ethical dilemmas many Commissioning Providers encounter, and understand how the Fundamental Canons can lead us in our decision making.
