EDRM has published its own Model Code of Conduct, available here. It establishes five principles for the electronic discovery process, and describes the duties of service providers and their clients with respect to each principle.
1. Professionalism - work should be both accurate and cost effective.
2 Engagement - reasonably foreseeable parameters for a project should be agreed to.
3. Conflicts of Interest - a service provider should be proactive in identifying conflicts of interest.
4. Sound Process - a sound process should be implemented and audited to preserve legal defensibility.
5. Security and Confidentiality - a service provider should maintain the security of ESI and communications about a project.
