What are we not able to help with?

  • we are not able to begin an investigation into a councillor or member of an NDPB, or advise how an existing investigation is progressing - this is the remit of a separate organisation called the Commissioner for Ethical Standards in Public Life in Scotland.  Further information about what they do can be found by clicking here.
  • we are unable to process requests for changes to be made to the Codes of Conduct, or provide information on the background decisions on what has or has not been included within the Codes.  The Codes are produced by the Scottish Government on behalf of the Scottish Ministers and as such requests of this nature must be made to the Scottish Government.

If you wish to make a complaint about a Local Authority councillor or a member of the Board of Management of a devolved public body, or just want to know more about the kinds of issues can be considered, please click the button below.
