Register of Interests for the International Board of Directors of Transparency International
Template Approved by the Board 8 July 2012
Register of Interests of Members of the International Board of Directors:
Guidelines
TI cannot expect of others higher standards of integrity than it applies to itself and to all
individuals whose contribution to TI is important. We understand that the full completion of a
Register of Interests is a fundamental aspect of integrity. Moreover, the Register is a 'living'
document, in that circumstances change, and a situation, which previously raised no issue
of potential conflict can suddenly be transformed into an issue where disclosure is
imperative.
Completion of the Register of Interests is not a 'box-ticking' exercise. Those completing the
Register are expected to think about the appearance of a conflict of interest and to disclose
it, even when they are satisfied that no actual conflict exists. On the other hand, there is no
point in filling the Register with entries where the risk of conflict is non-existent or never
likely to arise.
Those completing the Register are also reminded that TI's Policy extends beyond the
individual to include the interests of persons "with whom they have a close personal
relationship". This means that if such a person could be seen in any capacity as having an
interest, which could conflict with an interest of TI, disclosure should be made.
A potential conflict of interest does not cease at the moment when an individual leaves an
organisation. TI has always recognised the dangers of the "revolving door". Thus the
Register should include details of those past associations where current circumstances have
placed that past association into a potentially conflicting light.
1. Each Member of the International Board of Directors shall declare in this Register
any and all interests that could potentially lead to, or could conceivably be perceived
as, a conflict of interest. Such interests shall include, but not be limited to,
a. Any current or past remunerated affiliation (employment or directorship) with
a public or private company or other organization, including longer-term or
frequent relationships but excluding one-off short-term consultancies,
b. Any current or past non-remunerated affiliation with any public or private
company or other organization,
c. Significant (>10%) ownership or controlling position in any company or other
organization,
d. Any entity in which the member have more than 5% of their total assets
(company shares, public/private bonds or other kind of debts, investmentfunds
shares, etc),
e. Any pension,
f. Any current or past public office or public employment,
g. Interests of persons with whom the Member has a close personal
relationship, according to Section 1 or TI Conflict of Interests Policy.
2. As set forth in Section 2(c) of the Conflict of Interest Policy, this Register is open to
the public.
3. The filing in this Register shall be made within three weeks of taking up the position
of a Member of the Board of Directors and shall be updated in a timely fashion as
changes occur and at least once a year.
4. In case of doubt, a Member may request advice from the Board Ethics Committee as
to whether an interest that is subject to registration exists.
