European Professional Ethics Framework for the ICT Profession (EU ICT Ethics)


This document will provide an “European Professional Ethics Framework for the ICT Profession (EU ICT Ethics)” to support the vision of establishing a profession for the ICT workforce. It will thereby offer the possibility to coalesce other ethics focused initiatives around a common structure.This ethics framework will be directly linked to EN 16234-1. It will incorporate the structural concept of EN 16234-1 and, in a comparable way, describe a blueprint of what is required and what competencies, skills and knowledge are needed to identify and address the ethical challenges that ICT professionals face in their work.Therefore it will extend the ethics principles already described in the "Transversal Aspects of the e-Competence Framework" in such a way that concrete requirements and procedures can be defined and implemented in the respective context on the basis of the roles, methods and processes defined in the framework.The Scope therefore is to crystalize ‘ICT Professional Ethics” into a manageable, structure “European Professional Ethics Framework for the ICT Profession” and to provide guidance on practical application provided by a methodology and application guide that will support the establishment of codes of ethics.
