Congress adopts a Code of Conduct and reinforces its ethics regime
On 12 February 2021 the Congress adopted a new Code of Conduct for its members and revised its Rules and Procedures to strengthen its ethics regime, including the obligation to declare conflicts of interest.
The co-rapporteurs Liisa Ansala (Finland, ILDG), Harald Sonderegger (Austria, EPP/CCE) and Tamar Taliashvili (Georgia, SOC/G/PD) stressed that “having ethical provisions that are both clearly set out and, through a self-standing Code of Conduct and separate Declaration of Interests, mandatory, is the key to protecting our members, our Congress and contributing to an ethical and transparent culture”.
