Dealing with the media and speaking engagements

69. The Commission’s work regularly features in the media and it is important that media enquiries are handled accurately and consistently. You should pass on any media enquiries to the Communications Team. You should not comment to the media, even in a private capacity, without agreement of the Chief Executive. Remember that your position as a Commissioner might lead to perceptions that any private comments reflect official policy.

70. Care should be taken about invitations to speak at conferences or elsewhere. You should consult the Chief Executive about whether to accept such invitations. Where you do accept speaking engagements, you should ensure you are fully briefed on policy decisions and current issues. You must avoid making public statements on matters where policy has not yet been determined.
