Section 10010 - General Provisions - Incorporation by Reference of Standard Conflict of Interest Code (California Code of Regulations)

§ 10010. General Provisions - Incorporation by Reference of Standard Conflict of Interest Code

The Political Reform Act (Government Code Sections 81000, et seq.) requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate Conflict of Interest Codes. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation (2 Cal. Code of Regs. § 18730) which contains the terms of a standard Conflict of Interest Code which can be incorporated by reference into an agency's code. After public notice, it may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act. Therefore, the terms of California Code of Regulations, title 2, Section 18730, and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission, are incorporated herein by reference. This regulation and the attached Appendices designating officials and employees and establishing disclosure categories, shall constitute the Conflict of Interest Code of the Office of the Secretary for the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA).

Designated employees shall file their statements with the agency, which will make the statements available for public inspection and reproduction. (Gov. Code § 81008). Upon receipt of the statement for Agency Secretary, the agency shall make and retain a copy and forward the original of each statement to the Fair Political Practices Commission. Statements for all other designated employees will be retained by CalEPA.
