Ethical Principles Guidelines Iberoamerican Network of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences Institutions. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.2, pp.102-112. ISSN 0303-3295.

The Ibero American Network of Legal Medicine Institutions and Forensic Sciences, an organization that is part of the Red Cross International Committee agreed on a Guide of ethical principles with the purpose of a minimum agreed platform on ethical aspects in connection with professional practice in Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences within the regional context. Likewise, it aims to provide an axiological framework for both forensic institutions and professionals. The nine principles agreed upon deal with the obligation to respect and promote human rights, the technical quality of work, need for training in Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences, teamwork respecting disciplinary profiles, technical independence, potential conflicts of interest and deontological conflicts when acting under a certain rule, confidentiality and informed consent. The guide also undertakes the principles contemplated on several international documents and in the national codes of ethics. In Uruguay the document was approved by the School of Medicine and the Board of the University of the Republic decided for it to be communicated among all services, especially among those which take part in forensic activities.
