Equality Impact Assessment

The public sector equality duty specific duties require the Scottish Government to assess the impact of applying a proposed new or revised policy or practice against the needs mentioned in the equality duty. The Scottish Government is also required to publish the results of such an assessment within a reasonable period.

Equality Impact Assessment guidance is available to all staff via the Scottish Government's intranet.

Completed equality impact assessments are available to view at http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/People/Equality/18507/EqualityImpactAssessmentSearch.
