Consideration also could be given to the introduction of financial penalties (Recommendation No.48).

In addition, it is offered that “a Code of Conduct should be elaborated and implemented as a matter of priority through an inclusive and transparent consultative manner and in line with the international best practices,” (Recommendation No.50), reads a document.
