Code of Practice stock take – latest news – January 2017

To gather feedback on our proposals for a refreshed and revised Code set out in the Code Stocktake report, we are running focus groups across the UK in early 2017. Our aim is for a more agile, flexible and refreshed Code, which provides a framework, a set of principles, to ensure that statistics and other types of numerical information meet the highest standards of trustworthiness, quality and public value. If you are interested in the Code, use it in your day-to-day work and/or have thoughts on our proposals book your place at one of these focus groups by clicking on the links below and take the opportunity to share your views with us.
