World Scout Committee Conflict of Interest Policy

The purpose of this Conflict of Interest Policy is to prevent the institutional or personal interests of the World Scout Committee (WSC) members of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) from interfering with the performance of their duties and to see that there is no personal, professional, or political gain at the expense of WOSM. This policy is not designed to eliminate relationships and activities that may create a duality of interest, but to require the disclosure of any conflict of interest and the non-participation of any interested party in a decision relating thereto.
