Modern society is more increasingly defined by the need for reflection and ethical compliance on social, political, cultural, administrative policies, etc.
In this context, applied ethics developed and within this, a trans-disciplinary field, based on public reason and having a normative reflection: ethics expertise.
Within ethical expertise have developed a range of practices among which consulting and counselling, of ethics, ethics audits, building ethics codes and the activity of Ethics Commissions.
The paper’s aim is to argue from an epistemic and pragmatic view the need and academic functioning of a model embodied in ethical expertise, namely supervision of ethics. In fact, this model will bring together practices from all other forms of ethical expertise, exercising supplementary its gatekeeper role in the transfer of political theories about the public good through the implementing programs and practices thereof, and making compatible the professional values with the organisation ones, but also exercising the mediating role of organization-professional-client relationship, from a meta-ethical perspective.
