Surveys of Standards Officers and Board Members of Public Bodies

28th April 2022

The Standards Commission issued surveys today to all Standards Officers and Board Members of public bodies asking about their experiences with the ethical standards framework and in particular members compliance with, and awareness of, the provisions of the Model Code of Conduct. We intend to use the information gathered to inform any future training events and/or identify the need for any further educational material or guidance. We are also keen to see if we can improve how we handle enquiries and our Hearings and adjudicatory processes.

Links to each survey can be found on the Surveys page of our website.
