Code of Practice: Trade Organisations and Qualifications Bodies
This Code of Practice (COP), which applies to England, Wales and Scotland, is one of two COPs giving practical guidance on the operation of Part 2 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. This COP gives guidance on how to prevent discrimination against disabled people by trade organisations and qualifications bodies. It also gives guidance on the law which is intended to help lawyers when advising their clients, and to assist courts and tribunals when interpreting new legal concepts. It comes into force on 1 October 2004, when it will supersede the 1999 Code of practice on the duties of trade organisations to their disabled members and applicants (Department for Education and Employment, ISBN 0112710719). The second COP covers employment and occupation (ISBN 0117034193)
