Ethics in Public Office
The University of Limerick is subject to the Ethics in Public Office Act 1995 & the Standards in Public Office Act 2001 (known together as "The Ethics Acts").
Members of UL’s Governing Authority (known as "Designated Directors" under the Acts) and certain members of UL staff occupying "Designated Positions of Employment" have obligations under the Ethics Acts to make an annual Statement of Interests (or a Statement of Nil Interests if applicable).
Full details of such obligations are notified to the relevant members and staff each year by the Corporate Secretary’s Office.
In addition to the above,
- All University staff are required to comply with the UL Code of Conduct for Employees and the UL Conflicts of Interest Policy, and these documents are available on the UL Policy Hub.
- Information on Research Ethics and Research Integrity at the University can be viewed at https://www.ul.ie/research/content/researchintegrity
