In the frame work of the different theories concerning professional responsibility, this work pretends to present the general criterions established by national and foreign modern specialists to determine when a professional is responsible for his/her procedures. This article wants to demonstrate that is possible to find those general standards to impute professional responsibility, using a descriptive and analytic method. Thus, this study defines professional in terms of the national and foreign modern studiers of torts, and presents the various criterions to impute responsibility to the agent that correspond to the definition previously stated, shifting with the obligations that every professional has. This article shows the need to study the standards to impute professional liability used by the Colombian jurisprudence.
