At 11 March 2003 a total of 104 devolved public bodies had submitted codes of conduct under the Ethical Standards in Public Life etc. (Scotland) Act 2000. Consideration of the codes of conduct for members of devolved public bodies will be finalised shortly and the bodies will then be notified of ministers’ decisions. This will be completed well in advance of the 1 May commencement of the ethical standards framework.

Thirty-five codes have yet to be submitted from bodies which will come within the ethical standards framework on 1 May 2003. These relate to boards of management of further education colleges whose sectoral code has only recently been agreed with the Association of Scottish Colleges.

The codes for The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and The Cairngorms National Park are not required to be submitted until 1 September and 1 December 2003 respectively. This was specified in the Ethical Standards in Public Life etc. (Scotland) Act 2000 (Stipulated Time Limit) Order 2003 (SSI/2003/122).
