RULE 510-4-.01. Code of Ethics and Supplemental Code of Conduct

(1) Licensure by the State of Georgia mandates compliance with the Code of Ethics1 and the Supplemental Code of Conduct delineated in Chapters 510-4 and 510-5 respectively.

(2) This Code of Ethics and Supplemental Code of Conduct constitutes the standards against which the required professional conduct of a psychologist is measured. The psychologist shall be governed by the rules delineated in this Code of Ethics and Supplemental Code of Conduct whenever he/she provides psychological services in any context. These codes shall apply to the conduct of all licensees and applicants, including the applicant's conduct during the period of education, training, and employment which is required for licensure; the term "psychologist," as used within these codes, shall be interpreted accordingly. A violation of this Code of Ethics or the Supplemental Code of Conduct constitutes unprofessional conduct and may constitute sufficient grounds for disciplinary action, or for denial of licensure.

(3) Numbering and Coding Interpretation. The Numbering System Rule 590-2-1-.2 of the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia require a specific numbering sequence. The APA Code of Conduct as cited in this chapter does retain the accurate standard number but is preceded by the State Rule Numbering System to meet the consistency requirement (see Rule 510-1-.07 for the Numbering System Code).
