On Board - A guide for Board Members of Public Bodies in Scotland (April 2015)

This Guide provides much of the basic information that a Board Member will need to understand their role as a member of the Board of a public body in Scotland.

Conflicts of Interest

Public bodies should have in place clear rules and procedures for managing conflicts of interests. Together with the rules on registration of interests, this ensures transparency of your interests which might influence, or be thought to influence, your actions. You should note that the appearance of a conflict of interest in terms of public perception can be every bit as damaging as an actual conflict - both should be avoided.
