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.


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.
