Code of Professional Responsibility

ABC established the Professional Ethics Program to promote and maintain the highest standards of patient care and ethical behavior.

The ABC Code of Professional Responsibility is recognized throughout the profession as embodying the principles which govern the professional, ethical and moral integrity of individuals and organizations engaged in the delivery of orthotic, prosthetic and pedorthic care.

The fundamental objectives of the Professional Ethics Committee are to enforce the Code. The committee ensures that any person, facility or organization who may apply, has applied, or has been awarded any of the certifications or accreditations offered by ABC are practicing in accordance with professional and community standards. The Code and the committee serve to protect the public against unprofessional and unethical conduct by credential holders.

All ABC exam applicants and candidates must abide by the Code.
