Breaches and Exceptions to the Code of Practice
A breach of the Code of Practice for Official Statistics occurs where one or more provisions of the Code were not followed in situations where an exemption or exception had not been approved by the UK Statistics Authority's Head of Assessment, as required in paragraph (xii) of the Code's preamble e.g An example would be inadvertent release of data prior to the agreed publication date.
