High standard of conduct

Code of conduct

The Master Builders Associations expect its members to maintain a high standard of conduct and efficiency and has accordingly drawn up a code of conduct to which all members are required to adhere. Complaints against Members are treated very seriously. After ascertaining all the facts, Associations are usually able to mediate a mutually-acceptable resolution. However, if the Member is found guilty of transgressing the code of conduct, they can be suspended or expelled. The code of conduct focuses on the following critical elements:

SKILL

A member is required to possess the necessary technical qualifications, knowledge and practical experience - or to employ, in a position of responsibility, a person or persons therewith - to ensure that all building projects are carried out in a workmanlike and economical manner.

INTEGRITY

A member is expected to satisfy the building requirements of the client and/or fellow members by complying with the spirit as well as the letter of his contractual obligations and to handle all business transactions with fairness and honour.

RESPONSIBILITY

A member is expected to organize their business administration effectively, to maintain adequate financial resources for the proper discharge of all contractual obligations, to assist wherever possible in the training of the future skilled manpower needs of the Building Industry and, where applicable, to comply with all wage regulating measures for the Building Industry.
