Guiding Documents

Global Code of Conduct

The reputation of the FiTI as an initiative promoting good governance in fisheries, in particular transparency, participation and accountability, is one of its greatest assets. Activities in implementing countries as well as its international governance play an important role in creating and maintaining this reputation.

The purpose of the FiTI Global Code of Conduct is to prevent situations which could compromise FiTI’s national and international reputation, setting out norms of conduct which are expected of those involved in the FiTI.

Global Travel Policy

As a global voluntary initiative which relies significantly on third-party funding, the FiTI has a responsibility to ensure that expenditures incurred in carrying out its mission are reasonable and justifiable, balancing the need to attend meetings/events with its commitment to a reasonable use of resources.

The purpose of this FiTI Global Travel Policy is to describe the types of expenditures that are reimbursable by applicable travelers and to outline adequate instructions and procedures for those seeking reimbursement of their travel costs for FiTI-related travels.
