HSE applies its Enforcement Policy Statement, Enforcement Management Model and the Code for Crown Prosecutors when taking decisions on when to bring a prosecution. This resulted in a conviction rate of 94% in 2010-11. This is a good record, and in order to maintain the quality of enforcement decisions, HSE conducts a rolling programme of regulatory decision making peer reviews. Whether or not a person or company is successfully convicted is a matter for the court having heard the evidence presented.
