The Code of Conduct for MSPs sets out rules that members should abide by when acting as Members of the Scottish Parliament.
Most complaints about the conduct of members are investigated by the Commissioner for Ethical Standards in Public Life in Scotland (the Commissioner). This includes complaints in relation to members’ registration and declaration of financial interests. It also includes complaints about paid advocacy, lobbying and general conduct.
The relevant rules are in the Code of Conduct for Members of the Scottish Parliament. The relevant sections of the Code are listed below:
- Register of interest rules
- Declaration of interest rules
- Paid advocacy rules
- Lobbying rules
- General conduct rules
Complaints about these matters should be sent in writing to:
