• EthicsSA is proud to release our second guidance booklet, the Ethics Reporting Handbook: Guidelines for ethics officers and internal auditors. 


    In line with the Companies Act (2008) and the Public Service Integrity Management Framework, many organisations are now establishing ethics committees in one form or another. If these committees are to fulfil their mandate they will need credible and useful information on their organisations’ ethics performance. There has been a growing need for guidance from those who are responsible for compiling this information, but also those who utilise it.

    The aim of this booklet is to give practical guidance to ensure a higher standard of information.  Clear, relevant and timely information allows for more constructive engagement, more relevant ethics management programmes, and ultimately better ethics performance.
