Specific duties to support the general equality duty come into force in Wales

Implementation date: 6 April 2011

The Equality Act 2010 creates a single public sector equality duty and states that specific duties can be created to help public bodies meet their requirements under this general duty. The Equality Act 2010 (Statutory Duties) (Wales) Regulations 2011 (PDF format, 99K) (on the UK legislation website) set out the specific duties imposed on public bodies in Wales to help them meet the requirements of the general equality duty, including publishing equality objectives and collecting employment information.
