AbstractThe article offers information on the repercussions of an article in the Spring 1999 issue of "IEEE Technology & Society Magazine" concerning the efforts to get the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers, Inc.(IEEE) to support the ethical practice of engineering. It states that during the early 1990s, the IEEE United States Activities Board (IEEE-USA) backed a set of proposals by its Ethics Committee, which is chaired by Joe Wujek, to beef up IEEE support for engineering ethics. Relative to this, it is mentioned that IEEE was exhorted to actively assist engineers who are trying to abide by the IEEE Ethics Code.
