These re-appointments have been made in accordance with the Code of Practice for ministerial appointments to public bodies, issued by the Commissioner for Public Appointments. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees’ political activity (if any declared) to be made public.

In accordance with the Government policy on transparency in working procedures, SACN operates from a presumption of openness. Dates of meetings and agendas are published in advance and the minutes made available on the website as soon as they are agreed.
