Response to Scottish Government Consultation on the Draft Specific duties regulations

The Equality Act 2010 introduces a new public sector equality duty which will come into force in April 2011. While the Act sets out the overarching ‘general duty’, the Scottish Government is developing ‘specific duties’ for Scottish public authorities, which will help them meet the general duty.

The Scottish Government is consulting on the content of the specific duties. The deadline for responses is 26th November 2010.

The Commission’s response to the Scottish Government proposals is now available for download.
