This Code of Practice (COP), which applies to England, Wales and Scotland, is one of two COPs giving practical guidance on the operation of Part 2 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. This COP gives guidance on how to prevent discrimination against disabled people by trade organisations and qualifications bodies. It also gives guidance on the law which is intended to help lawyers when advising their clients, and to assist courts and tribunals when interpreting new legal concepts. It comes into force on 1 October 2004, when it will supersede the 1999 "Code of practice on the duties of trade organisations to their disabled members and applicants" (Department for Education and Employment, ISBN 0112710719). The second COP covers employment and occupation (ISBN 0117034193)

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?

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 Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides a statutory framework for acting and making decisions on behalf of individuals who lack the mental capacity to do so for themselves. It introduced a number of laws to protect these individuals and ensure that they are given every chance to make decisions for themselves. The Act has recently been supplemented with new provisions pertaining to those who need to be accommodated under care and treatment regimes that may have the effect of depriving them of their liberty, but who lack the capacity to consent. This Code of Practice provides guidance and information for professionals implementing the deprivation of liberty safeguards legislation on a daily basis. In some cases, this will be paid staff, in others, those who have been appointed by law to represent individuals who lack capacity to make decisions for themselves (such as deputies or donees of a Lasting Power of Attorney).The Code incorporates good practice and demonstrates how the principles of the Act can be applied to those who have been deprived of their liberty for their own safety, or for the safety of others.

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, developed jointly by the International Labour Office and the International Maritime Organization, contains a guidance framework for the formulation and implementation of security strategies and the identification of potential security risks. Aimed at governments, employers and workers, it is intended to promote a common approach to port security amongst Member states. The guidelines deal with a variety of issues including security roles, tasks and measures to deter, detect and respond to unlawful acts against ports serving international traffic and maritime operations, as well as considering security awareness and training. Practical examples of a port security assessment and a port security plan are also included. This code follows, where possible, the practice and principles identified in the IMO's ISPS Code and acts as a valuable, complementary guidance document to it, by extending consideration of port security beyond the area of the port facility into the whole port.

This code of practice has been designed to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the construction industry. Main contractors contract with clients to construct (and sometimes design) a project. 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.

Animal welfare considerations are becoming increasingly important for the keeping and farming of animals, both in Australia and internationally. Practices that may have once been deemed acceptable are now being reassessed in light of new knowledge and changing attitudes. The minimum standards outlined in this Code are intended to help people involved in the care and management of poultry to adopt standards of husbandry that are acceptable. Special requirements for various species are given in the appendices. This Code of Practice is intended as a guide for people responsible for the welfare and husbandry of domestic poultry. It recognizes that the basic requirement for welfare of poultry is a husbandry system appropriate to their physiological and behavioral needs. The Code emphasizes that--whatever the form of husbandry--managers, employees and all others responsible for the day-to-day needs of domestic poultry have a responsibility to care for poultry under their control.
