Code of Practice for Investigations

The publication of this Code aims to ensure that, as well as meeting the legal requirements for an investigation, Social Security Scotland investigators follow best practice at all times. It is designed to give assurances about training and accountability of staff carrying out investigations and an overview of the requirements and guidelines that they must follow. It does not include detailed or comprehensive guidance on all investigation processes.
