On Board: a guide for members of statutory boards

Guidance for all those appointed under statute to be members of the boards of public bodies 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.
