Cover of public authorities in Scotland - who is covered by the specific duties

This guide aims to provide, in one place, a list of all the public authorities in Scotland who are covered not only by the general public sector equality duty under the Equality Act 2010, but also by the specific duties in Scotland [authorities which are covered by the general duty but not by the specific duties are not listed.]

These duties arise under section 149 of the Equality Act 2010, and specific duties which are imposed by The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) (Scotland) Regulations 2012. The Regulations list certain types of public authority covered by the specific duties but do not name each authority. This guide names all the individual public authorities covered by the specific duties in Scotland.
