Codes of practice

Codes of practice are guidelines about the requirements of standards.  

To explain the requirements of standards in a practical way, the Commissioner issues codes of practice to organisations. The Commissioner will consult with organisations on their content before Welsh Ministers give consent to codes of practice.
