Throughout recorded history one of the great problems faced by man has been the development of a system by which truth may be made known.
With the development of the polygraph we have at least a system, soundly based upon psychology and research, which in competent hands, is capable of identifying those who speak the truth where there is a controversy.
With this breakthrough an awesome responsibility has now been placed upon the polygraph examiner whose work may affect the life, liberty, or happiness of the person being examined.
The National Polygraph Association must recognize the enormous potential for good through the use of the polygraph. We must pledge ourselves to identifying and eliminating any unqualified persons from our profession.
We must always strive to improve the capabilities of our membership by promoting education, research, advanced training, and by shared experiences. Above all we must dedicate ourselves to fostering and maintaining the highest ethical standards and principals of practice.
Now therefore, and be it known henceforth, it shall be the primary goal of the National Polygraph Association to foster and perpetuate an accurate, reliable, and scientific means for the protection of the truthful and innocent individual.
