Comparison:
The difference between the PIChE and AIChE Code of Ethics is that the AIChE Code of Ethics is a
concise and brief version of PIChE’s. Moreover, PIChE Code of Ethics is specific and a bit longer while
AIChE Code of Ethics is more generalized and broader in scope. Also, there are some sections in the
PIChE Code of Ethics that could not be found in the AIChE Code of Ethics, and vice versa. And some of
the sections in PIChE Code of Ethics are derived from the AIChE Code of Ethics.
