Hi Ronald,

Yes, we do have an Ethic Code, applicable to those individual with a 
professional relationship with LACNIC (employees, directors, providers, 
etc.): https://www.lacnic.net/1982/2/lacnic/lacnic-code-of-ethics

Additionally, we've implemented a couple of internal procedures to check 
resource transfers criteria and documentation.
