9 Equalities and environmental sustainability

9.1 Equalities


Any potential equality issues raised and considered for a topic are recorded in the topic selection decision that is published on the NICE website.


Topics selected for NICE guidance have any potential equality issues recorded in an equality impact assessment that is published with the scope and final guidance. Any relevant equality issues that relate directly to the guidance topic and recommendations are accounted for in the final guidance itself.

9.2 Environmental sustainability


The topic selection oversight panel considers whether there are any potential environmental sustainability issues that may need consideration, in line with NICE's commitment to sustainability.
