Profession and Ethics


The Ethical Code of RoSE represents the view by which in order to make a qualified assessment it is necessary to reach a high standard of professional responsibility. Each and every clause of the Ethical Code is based on the concept of professional respect. The Ethical Code of RoSE is the means by which our aim can be achieved.

We consider that the Ethical Code is innovative for Romania, and is based on responsibilities and oriented towards the requirements of the local, national and international professional conduct.

In the recent 15 years, due to novelty of concepts and activities, the project assessment, and the evaluation of programs and public policy were characterized by opportunism and confusion. This state of affair was due to the lack of a coherent view with regard to the needs and new mechanism for assessment and evaluation, and the absence of ethics or code of conduct. At the same time, mainly project assessors did not need any certification to work in this new field, being perceived more like subcontractors or consultants, lacking representation and a coherent voice.

The need of founding RoSE as an association, and the development of the Ethical Code has emerged naturally. It is high time for the RoSE members to have their own Ethical Code, and became professionals like all the other liberal professions.

Setting up the principles of the Ethical Code represents for our Association a unique memento, a commitment for integrity and correctness in the assessment and evaluation. The occupation of Project Assessor established by the Romanian Occupation Code (ROC) aims at indicating that competency, honesty and professional integrity are key elements and the basis for the mentioned occupation in Romania.
As a result, the Occupational Standard (OS) developed by RoSE, and approved by the relevant authorities comprises high professional standard that assessors are committed to follow in their activity based on the Ethical Code.

The Project of Ethical Responsibility and of the Ethical Code can be debated by all members of the association and can be viewed here.
