The undersigned applicant agrees to comply with the rules of professional conduct and ethics inherent in the pursuit of the activities of private investigation. He must fulfill all honesty, probity and honor that are required to adhere to the ALDE.
In relation to morality, with which it is often confused, ethics has a character essentially practical. It is essentially a direction that inspires conduct which guides and a legitimate right. If morality focuses on determining the first principles from which to assess any action, ethics from a concrete case. Moral values are values strictly intentional because they are values of appeal. 
Ethical values are immediately enforceable nature. They give themselves to read directly in behavior even if they do not refer to a "writing" (code of business ethics), defining the allowed to do. 
The establishment of ethical rules for the practice of professions related to private investigation empowers the individual who adheres to the values recognized by the group, and gives it in return, support the group in respect of the line defined action. 
This ethical code is a prerequisite for all staff working in the field of Private Investigation a concern for a quality that should become a natural reflex. It would be unrealistic to obtain the support of unions, or at least their benevolent neutrality, without a definition of this code of ethics. It can be a useful social relations. Naturally, this requires that all partners are involved Private Survey on the subject and that sanctions exist for players who affranchiraient of this code. 
Business ethics seems to be based on the idea that the company has become the best possible system, carrying values of efficiency and profitability, to remedy the ills of our society. This logic of efficiency is in any ideological discourse that refers to a utilitarian view of society. 
Some even say that ethics is just a bad response to good questions. This contradiction that we seek to emphasize and should not discourage an ethics of thinking capable of meeting the effectiveness and morality. 
Ethics is a guarantee for maintaining the motivation of the company as much as saving the image. 
Winston Churchill said: "IF YOU PUT YOUR FEET IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE ONE that was before you, YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THE CATCH" ... 
This means that all sectors of Private Investigation, today in the world, are concerned with the sociological evolution. We must develop a powerful spiral of Modern Private Investigation, at the expense of inefficiency, immorality and profitability at all costs.

" 
This unfair competition that plagues the entire world economy can take many forms, whose work is part concealed. There are underground activities that compete with our businesses and dangerously weaken our country.

The targets are known and the European countries and that Americans are the main target. Billions of euros and dollars are diverted from legal channels and landed in the coffers of organizations and unscrupulous businesses. We must stop the bleeding and revitalize the private sector, carrying wealth and jobs.
