Supplemental Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Department of Justice
Document Number: 2014-18028
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-07-31
Agency: Department of Justice
The Department of Justice (DOJ), with the concurrence of the Office of Government Ethics, is amending its Supplemental Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Department of Justice (Supplemental Standards) to incorporate existing rules for Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) employees that had initially been adopted by the Department of the Treasury (Treasury) when the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms was within Treasury. These rules, which have continued to be applicable to ATF employees after the transfer of authorities to DOJ, are being incorporated without substantive change into DOJ's Supplemental Standards. Additionally, this final rule designates ATF as a separate agency for purposes of applying the gifts and the teaching, speaking, and writing provisions of the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch.
