The Code of Practice of The New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors has served, since 1966, to promote reasonable and prudent standards throughout the entire State of New York.

The Code provides a framework and guide for the practising land surveyor and a standard of expectation for the public. The Code is intended to be versatile, providing for and encouraging the use of evolving technologies while remaining sensitive to and protecting long standing local standards, customs, and mapping traditions.

The Code seeks to avoid legal pitfalls and the difficulty or confusion that may arise from mandating procedures, methods, or precedents that may disrupt established and customary practice, by creating "punch list solutions."
