The earliest codes of ethics in Estonia were formulated during the first period of independence (1918-1940). For instance, the first code of ethics for veterinarians was approved by the Council of the Chamber of Veterinarians on 6 March 1938. The Union of Estonian Veterinarians has now adopted a new Code of Ethics (available in Estonian only), stating general principles, veterinarians’ responsibilities toward the client, rules of professional conduct and collegial relationships. Several codes of ethics and mission statements can be found in various fields, regulating professional conduct and ethical rules in professional unions, non-governmental organisations, and private corporations. According to The Handbook of Codes of Conduct (2007), published by the Tartu University Centre for Ethics, there were approximately 90 codes of conduct in different fields in 2007.
