Ethical standards

The Commission’s Board Operating Guidelines provide a Board Charter that outlines the function, duties and responsibilities of the Board, as well as a code of conduct that defines the standard of conduct required of Board members, and the ethics and values they are bound to uphold. The Duty to Disclose Interests Policy for Board Members requires Board members to recognise, declare, and take reasonable steps to avoid or appropriately manage any conflicts of interest. This includes the duty to disclose material personal interests, as required under section 29 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.
