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 but take seriously their responsibility, not just for the quality of the jobs they work on — but for the safety and well-being of the public at large. For more information, see NSPE Ethics.

The first and most prominent of NSPE’s ethical canons is aligned with the generalized principles of the Hippocratic Oath:

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