Description:

Although 2016 witnessed significant developments in the Regulatory field, including a new approach to Sentencing in health and safety cases and new legislation to modernise the Fatal Accident Inquiry process, the full impact of those changes is likely to be felt in 2017. After the decision of the High Court in the appeal against sentence by Scottish Power Generation Ltd, which saw the doors open for the first time to the newer, more robust Sentencing Guidelines produced by the Sentencing Council of England and Wales, the Courts are beginning to take a different approach in appropriate cases and very careful analysis and advice is required for clients on their options and implications. Similarly, the Inquiries into Fatal Accidents and Sudden Deaths etc. (Scotland) Act 2016 heralds a new approach to Inquiries and attempts to “strengthen Fatal Accident Inquiry legislation and bring it into the 21st century", with mandatory Inquiries for new categories of deaths and discretionary Inquiries into the deaths of Scots abroad, as well as heralding root and branch reform of certain procedural aspects. We will look at those changes and consider the implications for Insurers, Brokers and Insureds alike.
