Code of Conduct Committee

The aim of the Code of Conduct Committee is to provide assurance to CID members and partners that the Code of Conduct is being implemented effectively, to consider matters of Code compliance, and to ensure that complaints in relation to the Code of Conduct are being examined promptly and fairly.

The main responsibilities of the CCC are:

  • To consider compliance issues and implement the assessment, monitoring and review of compliance in relation to the Code of Conduct
  • To examine complaints (i.e. alleged breaches of the Code)
  • To develop and adopt relevant policies regarding the implementation of the Code of Conduct
  • To report on overall matters regarding the Code to the CID AGM and promote compliance to the wider public
  • To set Code of Conduct standards (noting that these cannot be changed without full agreement of the CID membership)
