The Engineering Council of South Africa's (ECSA) Rules of Conduct for registered persons in the engineering profession govern professional conduct and protect public interests. Contravention of these rules, which could involve a lowering of professional standards and increased public risk, must be investigated and acted upon by ECSA. This article reflects on transgressions of ECSA rules over the past decade and identifies perceived trends. It provides insight into how professional engineering conduct has developed or declined during the period under review and provides some significant portents for the future.
