In addition, they provide for clear expectations such as of integrity, honesty, among others, which professionals should maintain. Besides, profession codes do provide for ways of handling conflicts not only among the professionals, but also between the professionals and the outside world.
Moreover, they do provide for avenues for dealing with ethical concerns. Such avenues are clear even to the members of the public, and public can use such avenues to reach the responsible authorities. For instance, most professional organisations do provide hot-line numbers that members of public can use to report issues affecting them. The same codes do provide avenues through which members conflicting amongst themselves can apply to resolve their disputes. As such, the codes not only help the members but also non-members.
