A partial equality impact assessment (EQIA) was published as part of the Scottish Government's public consultation on the introduction of market restrictions on problematic single-use items in Scotland, which took place between 12 October 2020 and 4 January 2021. This document expands on the partial EQIA with additional research, data, and evidence.
The final EQIA focuses on some of the key issues identified in the partial EQIA and considers what mitigations could be put in place to reduce the risk of disadvantage that may unintentionally be caused.
