SOURCE: The provisions of this Part 500 appear at 32 F.R. 20855, Dec. 28, 1967, unless otherwise noted. $ 500.735–101 Purpose.

The maintenance of unusually high standards of honesty, integrity, impartiality, and conduct by Government employees and special Government employees is essential to assure the proper performance of the Government business and the maintenance of confidence by citizens in their Government. The avoidance of misconduct and conflicts of interest on the part of Government employees and special Government employees through informed judgment is indispensable to the maintenance of these standards. To accord with these concepts, this part sets forth the Commission's regulations covering its employees and special Government employees, prescribing standards of conduct and responsibilities, and governing statements reporting employment and financial interests. $ 500.735–102 Definitions.
