The equality and human rights impact assessment (EHRIA) for the Care Quality Commission's Judgement framework.  The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. The Judgement framework helps staff at CQC to reach judgements about a provider or manager's compliance with essential standards and to decide on the regulatory response if judged as noncompliant. This EHRIA concludes that the Judgement framework is unlikely to have an adverse impact on pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, race, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion or belief and age equality for health service providers or people who use health services.
