Revisions and corrections to the digital guidelines

The Council has established a new process for recording minor revisions and corrections that are made to the digital guidelines.

From 29 May, we will be publishing a log of minor changes that will allow users to track any amendments that have been made throughout the history of a guideline. The log will date back to November 2018, when the sentencing guidelines were fully digitised.

At the same time, we are publishing the Council’s policy on making changes to digital guidelines, which sets out what level of changes will be made and under what circumstances, and how these changes will be managed and logged.

The log and policy document can be found on the Updates pages of the magistrates’ court sentencing guidelines and Crown Court sentencing guidelines.
