Code of Conduct for Board Members
Upon appointment to the Board, your body's Code should have been provided to you (if one is in place).
You are discouraged from advocating or encouraging any action contrary to the Code of Conduct. It is your personal responsibility to make sure that your actions comply with the provisions of the Code at all times as the Code contains the standards against which your conduct will be measured. You should review regularly, and at least annually, your personal circumstances against the requirements of the Code.
If you are uncertain about any aspect of the Code, you should seek advice from the Chief Executive.
The following issues covered under the ethical standards framework may be helpful for Management Advisory Board Codes or Standing Orders.
