The paper aims at delineating basic practical advice, how to carry out the implementation in order to be successful. The paper aspires for identification of potential mistakes regarding the process of implementation. It should serve as a manual for accomplishment regarding code of ethics as a specific tool for institutionalization of ethical conduct within a university workplace. It should provide academic personnel with useful information on what risks should be anticipated when implementing a code of ethics. As it is vital to behave in concordance with certain ethical principles, norms and values in the academic workplace, we assume that the code of ethics can serve as a supportive instrument. Its acceptance is influenced by diverse personal as well as situational variables. Hence, to be able to prepare and implement one unifying value regulator into the daily operations for diverse personalities within one workplace is a complex task to accomplish.
