European Central Bank, Frankfurt
The European Central Bank published a new ethics code on December 16, tightening rules on equities holdings for its senior officials.
The central bank announced the new regulations in the wake of a bribery scandal in the European Parliament that has drawn attention to ethics rules in European Union institutions.
The new regulations, which replace a 2019 edition, apply to the board of directors. They also cover the other members of the rate-setting governing council and of the supervisory board
