Quality assurance

High quality analytical work is essential to the effectiveness of the CCC and as part of this we embed quality assurance processes into our analytical work. You can read our guidance on QA procedures at this link: CCC – Quality Assurance of Evidence and Analysis. Linked to this, a list of business critical models used by the CCC is available here.

The way in which we process your personal data relating to financial transactions when we interact with you is set out in the Personal Information Charter.
