Equality screening of policies and decisions for 2016

Date published: 03 March 2017

Equality Screening is the process of making an initial assessment about whether or not a policy or decision has the potential to impact differently and unfairly on different groups of people. Screening covers all aspects of our business and how we carry out this work – for instance; how we develop or review strategies and policies, assessing the provision of a new or existing service or by changing procedures, (whether these are written down or not).


On the basis of the answers to the screening questions, these policies/decisions are considered as "screened out", ie, no EQIA required.
