AbstractUsing the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME International) Code of Ethics as an example, this article discusses how professional societies are working to try and make their codes applicable to engineers working throughout the world. The author examines how provisions in the ASME code can cause problems of application for societies outside the United States, and how these issues can potentially be overcome.
