ISI Advisory Board on Ethics

Role and Objectives

After the adoption of the ISI Declaration on Professional Ethics by the ISI Council in July 2010 the ISI Executive Committee decided to establish an Advisory Board on Professional Ethics to advise the Executive Committee and Council on relevant ethical issues and to recommend or undertake activities for promoting observance of ethical principles in statistics.

Terms of Reference

A draft of the Terms of Reference was discussed with the ISI Council, as well as in a meeting with Heads of NSOs, in August 2011 during the ISI WSC 2011. The Terms of Reference were subsequently revised. The ISI membership will find the revised Terms of Reference of the ISI Advisory Board on Ethics here.
