We are inviting views on some revisions to the current guidance. These changes are based on decisional practice since the last change in the guidance in 2012, and relate to:
- Step 1 – application of the 30% starting point range
- Step 3 – mitigating and aggravating factors
- Step 4 – adjustment for proportionality and specific deterrence
- Step 6 – application of reductions for leniency and settlement
The guidance has also been revised to reflect institutional changes since it was originally published.
