Code of Conduct

At PAC’s Annual General Meeting on 19 October 2010, the Code of Conduct that a sub-group of PAC members had been working on was unanimously approved.

In light of the legislative and public mood at Westminster, Public Affairs Cymru took the decision that developing a Code of Conduct would be in the best interest of its members.

It is hoped that the Code of Conduct will promote best practice amongst PAC members and make a clear and definitive statement to stakeholders across Wales that Public Affairs Cymru, its members and representatives of the public affairs profession in Wales believe that lobbying and public affairs activity is an entirely legitimate and a vital part of Welsh democracy and that its members are committed to:

  • Safeguarding the reputation of the public affairs profession;
  • Encouraging best practice amongst public affairs professionals;
  • Promoting wherever possible the work of public affairs professionals operating in Wales
