This chapter considers the internationally approved standards of conduct for law enforcement officials and medical personnel. It examines the background of ethical texts adopted by the UN and Council of Europe for law enforcement officials and medical personnel with particular reference to the criteria suggested by Alfred Heijder regarding the merits of the different codes. Also, it suggests similar codes that will cover military personnel and lawyers, and studies the development of ethical principles for lawyers.
