Ethics and Standards of Behaviour: Guidance Note 5: Overview
The Scottish public has high expectations of those who serve on the Boards of public bodies and the way in which they conduct themselves in undertaking their duties. As a Board member, it is your personal responsibility to ensure that you meet these expectations by ensuring that your conduct is above reproach.
This section sets out the ways in which standards of conduct are maintained on Management Advisory Boards. It refers both to the Civil Service Codes ( UK and Scottish) and to the ethical standards framework introduced by the Ethical Standards in Public Life etc. (Scotland) Act 2000.
