The Chester County Engineers (CCE) association recently approved its "Code of Conduct for Pennsylvania Municipal & Consulting Engineers in the Land Development Process." CCE believes that as professions, if we rally around our shared core values, the land development process can be less contentious and more cooperative for all involved. And, CCE's Code of Conduct drafting committee felt that a strong Code of Conduct can be a first step in that process.

The CCE Code of Conduct is intended as a set of specific fundamental principles on how municipal engineers and consulting engineers should treat each other during the land development process, with the purpose of maintaining professional respect and fairness. It is firmly believed that each municipal engineer and consulting engineer who adopts this Code of Conduct into his or her daily practice of engineering will be preserving the integrity of the professional engineering license that he/she has sworn to honor and uphold, while also serving the reasonable interests of the municipalities and landowners in the land development process.
