Stats Authority Code of Practice 'stocktake' report seeks input

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in Latest call-outs to members

Following a widespread exercise of engagement with users of the UK Statistics Authority's Code of Practice, the Office for Statistics Regulation (the regulatory arm of the Statistics Authority) has published a Code Stocktake report. This report sets out a vision for a refreshed Code, building on the strengths of the existing one. It will make a clearer distinction between high level principles – with which a range of organisations can comply on a voluntary basis – and the core practices which apply to official statistics.

This report has been published as an 'exposure draft' to outline current thinking and to invite comments and observations from all stakeholders. Any specific changes to the content of the Code will be subject to a more formal consultation during 2017.

Ed Humpherson, director general at the Office for Statistics Regulation, explains in more detail why the Code Stocktake was carried out on his blog; and the latest Code Stocktake news sets out how you can get involved in the next phase and provide comments. Comments are welcomed before the end of February 2017.

Ed Humpherson and the Office for Statistics Regulation wishes to thank all those that have contributed their views and thoughts to the Code Stocktake.
