Quality Code website redevelopment
Work is underway to redevelop the web presentation of the Quality Code. The aim is to design an interactive platform which will enable users to access the information they need more effectively. We have collected feedback from existing users via a number of focus groups, and are using this to develop an initial concept and design. We are recording progress with this work on our blog and we invite you to post any comments and suggestions there.
Future review and revision
An indicative schedule for the future review and revision of the Quality Code is now available.
