The Curtin Code of Conduct outlines seven (7) professional standards of behaviour that all parties to the Code should understand and strive to meet. One of these standards concerns Conflicts of Interest / Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality. A key message in this standard is the need to avoid conflicts of interest in the first place, if possible. This is explained further in the FAQs.
