Can ethics ‘win-out’ over self-interest?

The CPSL is undertaking a review of ‘Ethics for Regulators’ to explore how regulators live up to the 7 principles of public life.  The Committee will undertake a ‘health-check’ of the way in which regulators manage ethical issues in their own organisations and the extent to which the unique characteristics of regulators create or demand any specifically tailored ethical solutions.

To a starting point the Committee is asking a wide range of regulatory bodies about their ethical standards, in order to gather evidence for the next steps of the review. The Committee will publish an overview of the issues raised in the Autumn.
