Register of Councillors' Interests

The Scottish Parliament has approved a Councillors' Code of Conduct. The current version of the Code came into effect in December 2010 and applies to all councillors and reinforces the expectation of the highest standards of behaviour.

The Standards Commission for Scotland is an independent body set up by the Scottish Parliament to promote high standards in public life and to investigate alleged breaches of the Code.

In terms of the Code, each Councillor is required to register their own interests across a number of categories:

  2. self employed,
  3. the holder of an office,
  4. a director of an undertaking,

  6. involved in undertaking a trade, profession, vocation or
  7. a member of an organisation

A description of the name and nature of the business and, as appropriate, the post held in the organisation and the nature and regularity of the work.

  1. omit information that ought to be given in this notice;
  2. provide information that is materially false or misleading;
  3. fail to give further notices in order to
    • bring up to date information given in this notice; and
