The framework for the Code of Practice is based on three pillars – Trustworthiness, Quality and Value.
Each pillar contains a number of principles and detailed practices that producers should commit to when producing and releasing official statistics. On each Code principle page there is a table with guidance and resources and links to case studies.
The Code also has three cross-cutting themes, areas of practice that don’t fit within just one pillar – collaboration, coherence, and transparency.
The Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) reviews compliance with the Code. OSR also offers Code training seminars and workshops for statistics producers.
