Code of Ethics
The public auction subjects all possessions to equitable public appraisal and competitive bidding and thereby determines fair and current values of personal and real property.
The Auctioneer is the master of conduct and procedure of the public auction. The Auctioneer is a confidant of the public, an instrument of community progress and development. Such functions impose grave responsibilities and duty beyond ordinary business policy to which the Auctioneer must be dedicated and must strive to maintain the highest standards of profession while sharing with fellow Auctioneers a common responsibility for Integrity and Honor.
Accepting the Golden Rule as the standard, the Auctioneer pledges to observe the Law of God and the Law of the Land in all dealings and to conduct business in accordance with the following Code of Ethics adopted by the South Carolina Auctioneers Association.
