Confidentiality

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.
