Internal reporting to the Discipline Board
At each meeting of the Discipline Board, it receives and discusses reports in respect of cases recently determined by Discipline or Appeal Tribunals. This allows the Discipline Board to monitor whether there are issues that may need to be addressed to improve the disciplinary processes (e.g. through additional guidance, or amendments to the Regulations).
On an annual basis, the Chair of the Independent Examiners Panel submits a report to the Discipline Board which summarises any independent examinations which have been undertaken in the calendar year. The report will also specify any aspects of ICAS’ investigation process which the Independent Examiner Panel considers could be improved.
The Discipline Board undertakes a self-evaluation exercise every year. This allows for a robust assessment of the effectiveness and impact of the Discipline Board. The feedback is used by the Discipline Board and Council to ensure that the Discipline Board is fulfilling its remit under the General Regulations, with appropriate follow-up action taken on areas of improvement.
