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.


On occasions, Board members will be required to treat discussions, documents and other information relating to the work of the body in a confidential manner. It is imperative that Board members respect this duty of confidentiality at all times. In particular, as a Board member you should never use information to which you have privileged access for personal or financial gain or in a way that brings the public body into disrepute.
