Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: equality impact assessment

The equality impact assessment (EQIA) for the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill.

Stage 1: Framing

Results of framing exercise

In line with usual practice, Scottish Government officials held an internal framing meeting. This is designed to ensure that officials in addition to those leading in a policy area consider at an early stage points which then need to be considered in more detail in the EQIA.

The exercise identified that the following protected characteristics were particularly affected by this Bill, and so were particularly relevant for this EQIA (other protected characteristics under the Equality Act were however also fully considered):

  • Disability (including reduced capacity);
  • Age (not just young people but older people);
  • Gender reassignment;
  • Sex;
  • Religion/belief.
