Subject: Foundation settlement

Does anyone know of a published standard that states what typical allowable foundation and or SOG settlements can be. I am looking for something similar to the allowable deflection criteria in table 1604.3 of IBC 2003 but for foundation settlement.

 

Also, is there a published Structural Engineers Code of Ethics or Standard of Care ?

 

Thanks,
