The Riksbank's Code of Ethics
As an employee of the Riksbank, you work for Sweden’s public administration, with the country’s citizens as your principal. Ultimately, public administration aims to implement the democratic values of the constitution (the Instrument of Government). The work of the Riksbank is part of this.
It is important to have insight into the fundamental values applicable for government
employees, for example that tax revenues fund our activities and that these activities
must be supported by legislation. These Code of Ethics provide guidance in some
issues that you are expected to be aware of as an employee of the Riksbank. The Code of Ethics thus complement the legislation existing for this area.
On 29 June 2022, the Executive Board adopted a revised Code of Ethics which will enter into force on 1 November 2022.
