While fully committed to INCE’s Canon of Ethics, Rand Acoustics is aligned in practice to the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) who have identical ethical canons yet take seriously their responsibility, not just for the quality of the jobs they work on — but for the safety, health and well-being of the public at large. For more information, see NSPE Ethics.

The first and most prominent of INCE’s and NSPE’s ethical canons is aligned with normative principles of the Oath of the Order of the Engineer and the AMA Code of Medical Ethics:

Hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public.
