Updated W3C Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (CEPC)

W3C today adopted a new Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (CEPC), developed by the Positive Work Environment Community Group. W3C’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct defines accepted and acceptable behaviors and promotes high standards of professional practice. The goals of this code are to:

  • Define acceptable and expected standards of behavior.
  • Provide a benchmark.
  • Ensure transparency in community and group management.
  • Ensure an environment where people can participate without fear of harassment.
  • Contribute to the identity of the organization.

This document supersedes the 2015 CEPC. Education and training materials are available from the Positive Work Environment public homepage.
