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.

Handling Conflicts of Interest

Public confidence in your public body and its Board members depends on it being clearly understood that decisions are taken in the public interest and not for any other reason. In deciding whether to declare an interest, the key test is whether a member of the public, acting reasonably, might think that a particular interest could influence you.
