Informal consultation on specific duties to support the general public sector equality duty

Close date: 21 April 2011

The Government seeks views on revised draft Regulations that impose specific duties on public bodies to help them meet their requirements under the public sector equality duty set out in s.149 of the Equality Act 2010. The Government published draft Regulations in January 2011, but has decided to revise them to reduce the burden on public bodies. Under the revised Regulations, public bodies would have to publish information to demonstrate compliance with the general duty no later than 31 December 2011, and publish their equality objectives no later than 6 April 2012.
