Under this framework, individual councillors and members are responsible for adhering to their respective codes of conduct. They can be subject to investigation by the CESPLS and, if they are found to have breached a requirement of the relevant code, they may be called to a hearing carried out in public by the Standards Commission.
Codes of conduct
We set the code of conduct for councillors of all 32 local authorities across Scotland. We last revised the code in July 2018, updating the last one which was published in 2010.
