Code for Dealing with Personal Interests

The ‘Code for Dealing with Personal Interests’ (short name: Code Personal Interests) describes the way of dealing with personal interests in the process of the preparation of, advising on and the decision-making about, the distribution of resources. The Code also states the way in which decisions about dealing with personal interests in the process must be explained and recorded. This means that NWO is able to account for their actions at all times. As of 1 July 2019 the Code Personal Interests will be valid.
