New sentencing guideline for health and safety offences

Published on 13 November 2015

In November 2014, the Sentencing Council began consulting on a draft guideline for health and safety offences, corporate manslaughter, and breach of food safety and hygiene regulations.

For the most part this final guideline mirrors the draft version as consulted on.  In particular there have been no changes to the tables used to calculate the appropriate level of fine.
