Policy on Conflicts of Interest

The British Association and College of Occupational Therapists (BAOT/COT) values the involvement of its members, colleagues, partners, and its employees to support and enable the organisation's work.


Conflicts of interest are not uncommon when individuals undertake different roles with different responsibilities and it is necessary to reduce or eliminate any risk of bias that might affect the efficient running of an organisation.

The Conflicts of Interest policy aims to help those individuals covered by its scope to identify, manage and declare anything professional, personal or non-personal to them that could conflict with the interests and efficient running of BAOT/COT and its standing within the professional community in which it operates.
