Abstract Setting values and standards of conduct for public officials in a code of conduct is amongst the first steps towards safeguarding integrity in the public sector. This chapter undertakes a review of the provisions in the new Italian Anti-Corruption Law that require Italy to issue a new code of conduct for public officials. Based on the experience and lessons learned from OECD countries, the chapter discusses key factors that Italy needs to consider in designing and implementing a code of conduct. The importance of defining the scope and content of the code in a consultative, participative manner and the institutional framework necessary for monitoring the implementation of the code and enforcing it are highlighted as key factors. The chapter also presents an implementation strategy for Italy.
