Code of Conduct and Ethics
Acting with integrity is a core value of FCC. FCC employees have an obligation to speak up in good faith and report possible violations of this Code. FCC also provides the public with direct access to FCC's Ethics Officer if they would like to discuss a particular situation.
This Code of Conduct and Ethics [PDF] applies to FCC, the FCC Board of Directors and all FCC employees (including permanent, term, contract and work placements).
Although it is not possible to describe every situation that may be encountered when dealing with FCC, the Code is intended to articulate the basic principles and expectations concerning the conduct of FCC and its employees, as well as providing some specific guidelines.
