Updated Report Writers' Guide
Thu, 31 Oct 2019

An updated Report Writers’ Guide has been published on the 'Documents' tab on the Democratic Services page on the Intranet.

Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)

The guide now includes a section on the requirement to complete a data protection impact assessment (DPIA). Further information on the DPIA process and forms to complete can be found elsewhere on the intranet but the stage 1 form should be completed as soon as sufficient information is known about a proposed change to a service or policy. 

Equality Analysis Process

All report templates in the guide have been updated to now include new wording regarding equality implications. Under Section E 'Equality Implications' the option to state, “There are no equality implications” has now been replaced with the phrase, “Equality implications have been considered and no negative impacts upon protected characteristic groups were identified”. 

All report writers must now use the new report templates embedded within the guide to reflect this change of wording.

For more information on the report writing process, contact a member of democratic services on (01482) 393206.
