Human Rights Assessment Tool

The Human Rights Act, which came into force in October 2000, incorporates into domestic lase the European Convention on Human Rights to which the UK has been committed since 1951. Section 6 of the Human Rights Act makes it unlawful for a public authority to act in a way that is compatible with a Convention right. The underlying intention of the Act is to create a Human rights culture in public services.
