In 2014, HMICS published its first Inspection Framework. This version is our third iteration of that framework, reflecting our regular review process to continually improve our approach. While each inspection or assurance activity varies in subject matter and scope, our framework is intended to provide a structure within which we ensure a consistent and professional approach to our work, assisting inspected bodies, stakeholders and the public to know what to expect from HMICS.
We also have a separate custody inspection framework which is currently under review with publication in due by the end of April 2023.
