Serious Incident Reporting
The Commission has opened a public consultation on its draft Serious incident reporting guidance. All charities, no matter what their size or income, must report serious incidents to the Commission. Incidents which are not reported at the time they occur must be reported in the charity’s Annual Monitoring Return. The serious incident reporting guidance is designed to help charity trustees to identify the types of adverse events which the Commission regards as serious incidents. It also sets out how these events, whether actual or alleged, should be reported to the Commission, as well as other relevant authorities, in a timely fashion.
The Commission’s public consultation, which will close at 5pm on Friday 21 July 2017, is an important opportunity to provide your feedback on the serious incident reporting guidance, which is currently in draft format, helping to shape the guidance before it is finalised and published later in 2017.
