Our Equality Objectives

The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties Regulations) require us to publish one or more objectives which we think we should achieve to meet any of the limbs of the general equality duty.

The general duty requires public bodies to pay due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between different groups; and
  • Foster good relations between different groups.

We review and re-publish our equality objectives on an annual basis.


Misconduct - gold starOur Equality Objectives for 2017-19


We have developed four overarching aims underpinned by six objectives. The equality objectives aim to:

  • Analyse the effectiveness of the BSB equality rules;
  • Improve diversity data collection to ensure we have a reliable evidence base;
  • Ensure equality and diversity analysis is an integral part of the BSB's approach to regulation;
  • Engage with a wide range of communities to inform our regulatory functions and inform our equality and access to justice programme.

Read our  Equality Objectives in full, including evidence base and timescales for completion.
