Corporate reporting

In this section you can find the Commission's corporate reporting documents, including annual reports, salary information and more.

Accountability at the Commission

The Equality and Human Rights Commission is the independent regulator for equality, human rights and good relations in Britain. We are a statutory body established under the Equality Act 2006 and our sponsor government department is the Government Equalities Office within the Department for Education.

Annual Reports and Accounts

The Commission publishes an annual report and accounts each year. This is a requirement as a public-funded body, but also shows how we have met our objectives and targets in that year.

Government transparency

The government has made a commitment to publish details of how departments and agencies are using public funds to increase transparency. This includes details of spending, tenders and contracts issued and salaries. To see tenders for the Commission visit the procurement portal. To find contracts across government, search the contracts finder. Departments are asked to publish their spending information using the same approach to timing, format and content. We follow guidance available on the HM Treasury website and publish the information in conjunction with our sponsor department, the Department for Education.

Business impact target (BIT) reporting

The business impact target (BIT) measures the economic impact of regulation on businesses. Every year we have to publish BIT assessments for qualifying regulatory provisions (QRPs) and a summary of non-qualifying regulatory provisions (NQRPs), without assessing their impact.

Consultation responses

We respond to consultations on areas of policy relevant to our remit. See our consultation responses.

Reports and publications

We publish a large number of reports as a result of our work, including research and inquiry reports. Visit our publications library.
