Code of Practice and other guidance

The Clergy Discipline Commission has produced a Code of Practice, which is intended as a guide to the Measure and its disciplinary procedures. The Code includes cross-references to the relevant provisions in the Measure and to the procedural rules made under it.

The Commission has also issued guidance on penalties, as well as a leaflet entitled 'I have a complaint about misconduct by a member of the clergy - what can I do?' and a leaflet for clergy entitled 'A complaint has been made about me - what happens now?'.

These documents are all available below.
