After careful consideration, much deliberation, and solid legal advice, the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) decided to develop a new, enforceable Code of Ethics for all ABIH-certified professionals, applicants, and examinees. The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), AIHA’s Academy of Industrial Hygiene (AIH), and ACGIH® have created a set of principles
that will complement the enforceable Code of Ethics for AIHA, AIH, and ACGIH, which they will share.
Though the Member Ethical Principles document was developed in cooperation with ABIH and is based on the same concepts as its newly approved and enforceable Code of Ethics
, the joint principles are not enforceable; rather, the document represents shared member Ethical Principles. These principles were available for member input and were approved by both the AIHA and ACGIH Boards of Directors.
