Inquiry Reports

Under section 33 of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005, we must report on the subject of the inquiries we make under section 28 if, as a result of our inquiries we:

  1. give a direction, or remove a charity from the Register under section 30
  2. suspend a person under subsection (4) of section 31, or
  3. give a direction under any of subsections (5) to (9) of section 31

You may see us refer to such Inquiry Reports as 'section 33 reports' because they have been produced as a result of the above legal requirements.

We can also choose to publish a report on the subject of any other inquiries we have made under section 28 - for example, an individual case may offer useful lessons for the wider sector.

We publish our Inquiry Reports for a 12 month period.
