Summary/Abstract: In this article I willbe presenting some definitions of the ethical code given by specialists in appliedethics. I will also be presenting the reasons why I find one of these definitions to be moreconvincing than the others and I will also be pleading for the consolidation of theethical codes on basic moral principles of universal character for different professions.With the purpose of highlighting the fact that the lack of consolidation of ethicalcodes based on moral principles of general understanding makes it difficult to definethe specific rules of a profession leading in the end to a mixture of the types of norms,I will be analyzing the way in which ,,The Ethical and Professional Conduct Code” ofThe Ministry of Work, Family, Social Protection and the Elderly was consolidated. In theend I will draw attention on the necessity for the Romanian organizations to have notonly ethical codes, but especially to have ,,ethical infrastructures” because this is theonly context for an ethical code to function properly.
