Supervision Returns for High Impact Chambers

In April 2014, all chambers were asked to complete an Impact Audit Survey. This survey sought to measure the potential impact of a range of risks should they materialise at a chambers. Based on the answers given to the Impact Audit Survey, each chambers was grouped into one of three categories according to impact: Low, Medium and High

All High impact chambers were asked to complete a Supervision Return questionnaire by mid-September 2014. The questionnaire asked a series of open questions about the administration of chambers and how regulatory compliance is achieved. The Supervision Department has now assessed almost all High Impact Chambers and informed them of their level of risk. Those Chambers who have yet to receive their results will be hearing from the Supervision Department very shortly. Medium Impact Chambers will receive a Supervision Return later this year.

If you were expecting to hear about your Supervision Return and you have yet to do so, please check with your Regulatory Contact in Chambers or get in touch with us by email: supervision@barstandardsboard.org.uk.

Thank you to all of those who participated for the time and effort which they put in to completing the Returns. If you'd like to find out more about the role which Supervision plays at the BSB, please consult the Supervision pages of our website.
