The Beowulf Life Sciences Code was a code of ethics for medical practictioners and genetic engineers.
It originated on the planet Beowulf in the Sigma Draconis System, which was renowned for its medical scientists. The Beowulfans developed a code of ethics in the wake of the Final War, supplanting the ancient Hippocratic Oath of Earth.
One of the provisions of the code was Practitioner-Patient Confidentiality, but this very clause also had stipulations on circumstances where confidentiality could be involuntarily violated or waived by one party without consent of the other. (HH8)
