This page deals with the discussion of changes to the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). A review was completed in September 2013.
This review covered all aspects of the PSED, and was published in September 2013 - www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-independent-steering-groups-report-of-the-public-sector-equality-duty-psed-review-and-government-response
No changes are currently proposed to the legislation. However the review makes various recommendations, with the emphasis being to cut unnecessary bureaucracy which is not required to comply with the PSED.
The review proposed, and the government has accepted, that a full evaluation of the PSED should be undertaken in 2016 when it will have been in force for five years.
