Section 62 Codes of Practice
161.By section 62 the Council is required to produce codes of good practice for social care workers and for employers of such staff. No such nationally agreed codes exist at present. It is intended that drawing up and promulgating these codes will be the first task for the Council. Social care is a fast developing field, therefore the codes will not be static. The Council will be obliged to keep them under review and amend them where it thinks necessary, consulting representatives of social care workers. The appropriate Minister may incorporate relevant parts of them into the national minimum standards described in section 23 that will apply to services registered with the registration authorities.
