{mosimage}The Communications Cable and Connectivity Association Inc. (CCCA) has adopted a formalized Code of Ethics, establishing basic ground rules and a framework for professional behaviour and responsibilities among its members. In time, CCCA expects that the quality commitment represented by its Code of Ethics will begin to differentiate quality cable and connectivity manufacturers and distributors from those marketing counterfeit and substandard or non-compliant products.

CCCA Code of Ethics is segmented into three sections that provide the
rules of conduct, procedures and consequential actions. The first,
Principles of Ethics, outlines the specific goals of behavioural
conduct, both socially and professionally. The second, Rules of Ethics,
identifies mandatory and specific industry standards and procedures as
guidelines for consistent quality of manufactured products and
services. The final and most in-depth section, Administrative
Procedures, details the actions to be taken within the association to
encourage and enforce the code.

technologies, and in doing so, assuring consistent quality through
practicing high ethical standards in every aspect,” said Kevin St. Cyr,
CCCA chair and president of Berk-Tek. “A formalized Code of Ethics
provides a benchmark, as well as a constant reminder of our obligations
to this industry and our community.”
