  • Scottish Government publishes consultation Gender Recognition Reform Bill

    Created: 18/12/2019

    The Scottish Government has published a draft bill which aims to simplify the process for trans people obtaining a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC).

    The draft bill will reform the UK-wide Gender Recognition Act of 2004 in Scotland, which allows trans people to obtain a GRC by applying to a tribunal called the Gender Recognition Panel.

    The Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill proposes removing the current requirement for people to apply to the UK Gender Recognition Panel and drops the need for applicants to provide medical or psychiatric evidence of a diagnosis of gender dysphoria.
