 37        the enforcement of such standards with respect to those who have  obtained

  5        (3)  The board shall also have the authority to make rules  not  inconsis-
  6    tent with law as may be necessary for the proper performance of its duties.
  7        (4)  The board shall have the authority to adopt a code of ethics for res-
