National Science Foundation Polar Code of Conduct - LINK CORRECTION

Edillon, Terri

The National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs (OPP) this month issued an updated Code of Conduct that restates important principles and expectations of professional conduct and acceptable behavior for all personnel who deploy to the Arctic or the Antarctic under OPP’s auspices.

 

The code is a “shared statement of commitment to uphold ethical, professional, and legal standards.”

 

The document states that the objective of participants’ presence in the polar regions “is to contribute to accomplishing the mission of the U.S. government while fully adhering to all applicable international and national legal and policy requirements, including those of the Antarctic Treaty system and the Arctic's state, local, and tribal governments.”

 

The code further emphasizes that “all personnel will treat others with dignity and respect, will exercise the highest level of professional and ethical behavior, and will work cooperatively to resolve differences” and that it is “everyone's responsibility to provide a safe workplace and to protect the polar environment.”
