Code of practice for the review of Significant Case Reviews of children and young people in Scotland

The Scottish Government requested that the Care Inspectorate take on the role as a central collation point for Significant Case Reviews (SCR) and to review and disseminate learning nationally. The responsibility for the decision to carry out an SCR and for conducting the review lies with local Child Protection Committees (CPC) and Chief Officers Groups (COG). 

They are advised to do so paying due regard to national guidance for Child Protection and for conducting an SCR published by the Scottish Government. This Code of Practice sets out the arrangements the Care Inspectorate will put in place to manage confidential and personal information and take account of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the Data Protection Act 1998.
