Changes to how we enforce
Our new policy about what we do if a provider does not provide a service within the law, came into force 1 May 2018.
We have made changes to how we enforce. We have introduced a new policy ‘Securing Improvement and Enforcement’. This sets out our approach to enforcement and the processes we will follow. It replaces our previous guidance.
What are the changes?
- We have new increased powers in securing, improvement and enforcement under the new Regulation and Inspection of Social Care Act 2016 (External link), which came into force in April 2018.
- A new approach to how we make our decisions about securing and improvement.
The new policy came into force from 1 May 2018. More information about how we enforce is available here.
