Medium Impact Supervision Returns

We have now sent Supervision Returns to all Medium Impact chambers. Chambers should complete their Supervision Returns by Friday 17 July.

We assessed all chambers as Low, Medium or High impact in April 2014 via the Impact Audit Survey. This survey sought to measure the potential impact of a range of risks should they materialise at a chambers. High Impact chambers completed their Supervision Returns in 2014. 

The Supervision Return will assess  Medium Impact Chambers as Low, Medium or High risk. The Supervision Return will be asking a series of open questions about how chambers are administered and regulatory compliance is achieved. Essentially, this is an opportunity for chambers to explain how effectively potential risks are being managed, to help us determine the likelihood of these risks actually materialising and to establish the level of supervision and support that chambers might need.

If you have any questions about the Supervision Returns process, please contact the Supervision Team: supervision@barstandardsboard.org.uk
