  • Honesty is a fundamental principle of all behaviour.
  • Responsibility in decision-making, particularly those affecting safety, health and public welfare, as well as the rejection of all forms of negligence in research.
  • Strict compliance with the law.
  • Efficient use of public and private resources.
  • Respect for the environment and the inalienable rights of human beings from conception.
  • The identification of conflicts of interest arising from the work, informing the parties involved when they exist.
  • Respect for intellectual property in any form.
  • Loyal professional collaboration with other colleagues and with other institutions.
