Title: Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch 
Abstract:

Regulation implementing certain provisions of Executive Order 12674 on Principles of Ethical Conduct, as modified by Executive Order 12731, and the Ethics Reform Act of 1989 (Pub. L. 101-194), as amended. Effective February 3, 1993, this ethical conduct standards regulation generally superseded Executive Branch employee conduct and gifts rules, as well as pertinent portions of agency-specific conduct regulations issued under prior Executive Order 11222. For certain existing agency regulatory standards setting forth financial interest prohibitions and prior approval for outside employment/activities, an extended grace period was in effect until November 1, 1996, or until individual concerned agencies issued supplemental regulations (with Office of Government Ethics concurrence), whichever occurred first.
