The Equality Commission conducts all its business in an open and transparent manner and we routinely publish information on this website.
Our publication scheme (pdf) is a guide to the information routinely published by the Commission and provides details of where you can find it.
If you cannot find information on the website and we have indicated in the publication scheme that the information is available, this may be because the information cannot be loaded onto our website. In such circumstances please contact the Secretariat team to request the information directly.
