The Attorney General’s Review published in November 2018 made a series of recommendations to improve disclosure practice. Since then, the Crown Prosecution Service, under Phase Two of the National Disclosure Improvement Plan, has undertaken a number of activities to increase the rigour and application of the disclosure test in volume crime.

The explosion in both the capability and use of digital technology has brought new and significant challenges to criminal investigations and prosecutions. In recognition of the challenge posed by the proliferation of digital data, the CPS has delivered disclosure training to over 98% of prosecutors, and will commence a review, with the Home Office, under the National Disclosure Improvement Plan to identify scalable technological solutions in this space.
