Detailed Outline

The Code of Conduct for Ministers of the Crown has been revised with effect on and from 20 September 2014.

The new Code has been prescribed as an applicable Code for the purposes of section 9 of the Independent Commission Against Corruption Act 1988. This means that, for the first time, a suspected breach of the Code may be investigated by the Independent Commission Against Corruption and, if substantiated, give rise to a finding of corrupt conduct.

The Code includes a schedule of provisions, the breach of which may trigger a breach of the Code if done knowingly.

The new Code is contained in an appendix to a regulation made under the Independent Commission Against Corruption Act 1988.

As stated in the preamble to the Code, it is essential for the maintenance of public confidence in the integrity of Government that Ministers exhibit, and be seen to exhibit, the highest standards of probity in the exercise of their offices, and that they pursue, and be seen to pursue, the best interests of the people of New South Wales to the exclusion of any other interest.

A copy of the revised Code of Conduct is available on the NSW Legislation websitehttp://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/sessionalview/sessional/subordleg/2014-546.pdf.
