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”.

The signature of the Code of Conduct and the Declaration of Interests will be mandatory for all new members and a prerequisite for members of the Congress to exercise full membership rights, including the right to participate, speak, vote and enjoy defrayal of expenses.
