Councillor Code

The Councillor Code of Conduct plays a vital role in setting out, openly and clearly, the standards of conduct that must be applied and, in doing so, they will reinforce and strengthen public confidence in Councillors and those appointed to public bodies.

The Standards Commission for Scotland - in co-operation with the Chief Investigating Officer - is responsible for the enforcement of the Code.

The Code of Conduct for Councillors document, available from the Related Downloads section to the left, is maintained on the Scottish Government website.
