No engineer shall request, propose, or accept a professional commission under circumstances in which his professional judgment may be compromised.


No engineer shall maliciously or falsely attempt to injure directly or indirectly, the professional reputation, prospects, practice or employment of another engineer, nor indiscriminately criticize other engineer’s work and in the event that an engineer believes that another engineer is guilty of unethical or illegal practice, shall present such information to the proper authority for action.
