Revised Code of Practice on definition of disability comes into force

Implementation date: 1 May 2006

The Code of Practice provides practical guidance on matters to be taken into account when considering whether a person is disabled for the purposes of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The Code reflects changes made by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 to the provisions of the 1995 Act governing who is a disabled person. The Code (PDF format) can be viewed on the Disability Rights Commission website. The Order bringing this into force can be viewed on the OPSI website.
