After public notice and hearing, the standard code may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act. Therefore, the terms of California Code of Regulations, title 2, section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission, are hereby incorporated by reference. This regulation, and the attached Appendices designating positions and establishing disclosure requirements, shall constitute the conflict of interest code of the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.
Individuals holding designated positions shall file their statements with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which will make the statements available for public inspection and reproduction. (Gov. Code, ¬§ 81008). Upon receipt of the statement of the Director, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing will make and retain a copy and forward the original of the statements to the Fair Political Practices Commission.
