Mandatory reporting seminar – transcript and materials

IICSA Seminar – 27th September 2018

In this, the first of two seminars,  the existing obligations to report child sexual abuse in England and Wales were considered, and the experiences of other countries where mandatory reporting legislation exists. In the morning session, existing obligations to report child sexual abuse in England and Wales were reviewed, and how these differ across professions and institutions. The afternoon session looked at how mandatory reporting laws operate in a number of countries outside England and Wales, and any impact these laws may have had on preventing and responding to child sexual abuse.

The IICSA has published the following material on the day’s proceedings:

The second seminar will be held on 30th April 2019, at which the Inquiry will consider the arguments for and against the introduction of mandatory reporting legislation in England and Wales, and the practical considerations involved in introducing such a law.
