This code of practice sets out the following key principles. It: seeks a commitment to short tender lists and selection on the basis of quality and price; ensures that contractors offer sub-contracts which meet the principles contained in 'Constructing the Team'; rules out Dutch auctioning; ensures that main contractors notify clients in advance of the commencement of work of the names of 'first line' subcontractors; secures a commitment from subcontractors to work co-operatively with other subcontractors. The working group for this guide was chaired by Chris Sneath from the Constructors Liaison Group. This code of practice is one of a set of documents from the CIB aimed at improving the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry. It should be used in conjunction with the other documents in the series. 1-4 The good practice recommended should be observed in commercial relationships throughout the contractual chain and throughout the duration of a construction project. Subcontractors can be selected by competitive tendering, by negotiation or as a result of partnering or a joint venture arrangement. Competitive tendering is complex and requires everyone involved to follow a common set of procedures; inevitably it occupies the bulk of this code. In competitive tendering for small or simple works all the steps described are required but many may take place informally, and these are indicated by dotted lines in the diagrams which accompany each section of the code. Negotiation, partnering or joint ventures should all be carried out in the same spirit of good practice although specific procedures will vary. For competitive tendering to be effective in providing good value for money it must be seen to be fair and the processes by which decisions are reached must be as open as possible. This applies to all forms of subcontractor selection. The key principles of good practice in selecting contractors are that: clear procedures that ensure fair and transparent competition in a single round of tendering consisting of one or more stages should be followed the tendering process should ensure receipt of compliant, competitive tenders tender lists should be compiled systematically from a number of qualified candidates tender lists should be as short as possible conditions for all tenderers should be the same confidentiality should be respected by all parties sufficient time and information should be provided to allow the preparation of tenders appropriate to the type of works tenders should be assessed and accepted having regard to quality as well as price practices that avoid or discourage collusion should be followed tender prices should not change on an unaltered scope of works proposed contracts should be compatible and consistent with the main contracts suites of contracts and standard unamended contract forms from recognised bodies should be used where they are available there should be a commitment to team work from all parties All construction projects involve risk in a variety of areas. Risk management, the appropriate assessment and apportionment of these risks, is essential to the success of any project. The code deals specifically with the selection of subcontractors by main contractors and the selection of sub-subcontractors by subcontractors, with particular emphasis on competitive tendering. Selection forms only part of the whole process of construction; the overall success of projects depends on other parts of the process being carried out in the same co-operative spirit. The code stresses the need for clarity and certainty at all times, whichever procurement system is chosen. Compliance with this code will result in practices such as multiple round tendering, bid peddling or 'Dutch auctioning' being rendered unacceptable.

This Code of Practice is a reference tool for those dealing with, and caring for people admitted to hospital and care homes with mental health problems. Authored by the Department of Health and produced following wide consultation with those who provide and receive services under the Mental Health Act, this publication will come into force on 3 November 2008. Through the Mental Health Act 2007, the Government has updated the 1983 Act to ensure it keeps pace with the changes in the way that mental health services are - and need to be - delivered. This publication provides guidance and advice to registered medical practitioners, approved clinicians, managers and staff of hospitals, and approved mental health professionals on how they should proceed when undertaking duties under the Act. It also gives guidance to doctors and other professionals about certain aspects of medical treatment for mental disorder more generally. The Mental Health Act Code of Practice is also aimed at all of those working in primary care, Mental Health Trusts, NHS Foundation Trusts as well as solicitors and attorneys who advise on mental health law. The Code should also be beneficial to the police and ambulance services and others in health and social services (including the independent and voluntary sectors) involved in providing services to people who are, or may become, subject to compulsory measures under the Act. It will also be a guide for those working with people with specific mental health needs such as those in nursing and care homes, and those in prison.

This code refers to the party employing the contractor as the client, and to the employed party as the contractor. It focuses on the procedures appropriate for the selection of main contractors by competitive tendering. This code of practice is one of a series of documents from the CIB1-5 designed to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry.

The Information Society is bringing about radical changes in the way people work and interact with each other and with information. In contrast to previous information processing paradigms, where the vast majority of computer-mediated tasks were business-oriented and executed by office workers using the personal computer in its various forms (i. e. , initially alphanumeric terminals and later on graphical user interfaces), the Information Society signifies a growth not only in the range and scope of the tasks, but also in the way in which they are carried out and experienced. To address the resulting dimensions of diversity, the notion of universal access is critically important. Universal access implies the accessibility and usability of Information Society technologies by anyone, anywhere, anytime. Universal access aims to enable equitable access and active participation of potentially all citizens in existing and emerging computer-mediated human activities by developing universally accessible and usable products and services, which are capable of accommodating individual user requirements in different contexts of use and independently of location, target machine, or run-time environment. In the context of the emerging Information Society, universal access becomes predominantly an issue of design, pointing to the compelling need for devising systematic and cost-effective approaches to designing systems that accommodate the requirements of the widest possible range of end-users. Recent developments have emphasized the need to consolidate progress by means of establishing a common vocabulary and a code of design practice, which addresses the specific challenges posed by universal access.

The Pan-European Biological and Landscape Strategy (1996) aims to halt the degradation of landscape and biological diversity across the European region. Action Theme 2 of the Strategy relates to the integration of landscape and biological diversity into other sectors including transport. This Code of Practice contributes to this progress. The Code relates to linear transport systems, comprising roads, railways and inland navigation along waterways, such as canals and rivers. It aims to assist elected representatives, decision makers, and practitioners as well as nature conservation bodies in the understanding of the main issues and solutions associated with the planning, design and use of linear transportation networks i.e. roads, railways and inland navigation channels, in relation to the landscape and biological diversity. Other modes of transport are outside the scope of this CodeThe Code sets a political and social framework and proposes policy options for the development of new, and the maintenance of existing linear transport systems in relation to biological and landscape diversity. By building on examples, the Code has developed a series of Practice Pointers.

This is a supplement to the code of practice to Part 3 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, known as the Part 3 Code, which published as: "Rights of access to goods, facilities, services and premises" (2002, print version ISBN 0117028606). Although services associated with transport infrastructure have always been covered by Part 3 of the Act, access to transport services was exempted. Changes introduced by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 allowed this exemption to be lifted, and this has been done by the Disability Discrimination (Transport Vehicles) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/3190, ISBN 0110736311) which come into force on 4 December 2006. This supplementary Code sets out to explain the changes in the law. Chapters cover: the scope of the Code; what the Act says about providing services, and how this affects transport providers; the provider's duty not to treat a disabled person less favourably; making changes for disabled people ("reasonable adjustments"); reasonable adjustments in practice; can a transport provider justify less favourable treatment or make reasonable adjustments?

Dairy farming is of considerable economic and social importance to Wales, accounting for a third of all agricultural production by value and employing thousands of people. The dairy industry in Wales has an estimated total economic output of about £420m, one third (30%) of all Welsh agricultural production. There are 1,901 dairy farmers in Wales who produce 1.5 billion litres of milk per year, 12% of the total UK milk volume. The 224,000 dairy cattle in Wales constitute about 12% of the UK dairy herd. Long-standing cost pressures on dairy farmers came to a head in a crisis in summer last year, 2012, when processors announced a series of milk price reductions to be implemented at short notice. The Committee's key conclusions are: (i) The new voluntary code of practice is an important step forward to redress the balance in the contractual relationship between dairy producer and purchaser; (ii) The Committee urges all dairy processors who have not yet signed the voluntary code to do so; (iii) The code must be given time to work; (iv) Should the voluntary code fail, the UK Government must legislate for a statutory code of contracts.
