REQB® STAKEHOLDERS

The REQB® creates the syllabi, defines the rules for accreditation and certification and manages all the activities of some international Working Groups, that facilitate the development of REQB® for the cooperative design of syllabi, exam rules, processes, etc. The REQB® Working Groups ensure the development and the spread of the knowledge according to the most up-to-date needs of the profession.

The Member Boards act in the local communities as direct contacts to professionals and organizations interested in the REQB® scheme; they translate syllabi in the local languages, accredit training providers and perform exams (directly or through examination bodies that are thus represented in dotted lines).

Training providers create the course material in alignment with syllabi and perform training to those professionals interested in such service; taking a training course is not a pre-requisite for sitting in an exam (this is the reason why the arrow from training providers to certified requirements engineers is dotted).

REQB® CODE OF ETHICS FOR REQUIREMENTS ENGINEERS

Involvement in requirements engineering enables individuals to learn confidential and privileged information. A code of ethics is necessary, among other reasons to ensure that the information is not put to inappropriate use.

Recognizing the ACM and IEEE code of ethics for engineers, the REQB® states the following code of ethics:

  • PUBLIC - Certified requirements engineers shall act consistently with the public interest.
  • CLIENT AND EMPLOYER - Certified requirements engineers shall act in a manner that is in the best interests of their client and employer, consistent with the public interest.
  • PRODUCT - Certified requirements engineers shall ensure that the deliverables they provide (on the products and systems they work on) meet the highest professional standards possible.
  • JUDGMENT - Certified requirements engineers shall maintain integrity and independence in their professional judgment.
  • MANAGEMENT - Certified requirements managers and leaders shall subscribe to and promote an ethical approach to the management of requirements.
  • PROFESSION - Certified requirements engineers shall advance the integrity and reputation of the profession consistent with the public interest.
  • COLLEAGUES - Certified requirements engineers shall promote cooperation, shall be fair to and supportive of their colleagues.
  • SELF - Certified requirements engineers shall participate in lifelong learning regarding the practice of their profession and shall promote an ethical approach to the practice of the profession.
