In order to work effectively with other agencies we are developing protocols so that both organisations understand clearly how we can co-operate and assist each other. They also set out what you can expect.
Memorandum of Understanding between IPCC and HM Coroners Society. This is designed to clarify the working relationship between the IPCC and HM Coroners and promote mutual understanding of the roles of each.
The IPCC agreed on 27 November 2007 a protocol for liaison with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in investigations. While IPCC do not investigate health and safety offences as a matter of course, there are circumstances where an incident within its jurisdiction has health and safety management implications, and could therefore be a relevant matter for HSE. The protocol is to help HSE and IPCC investigators understand each other's remit, identify areas of shared interest and provide a mechanism for liaison. Below is a link to the Work Related Deaths Protocol referred to in the protocol.

Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the IPCC, and HMIC and HMIP
The scrutiny requirements of the UN Optional Protocol against Torture require the UK to ensure regular and independent inspection of all places of detention. To this aim, Her Majesty’s Inspectorates of Constabulary and Prisons (HMIC and HMIP) have established a programme of joint inspections of police custody facilities in all forces and London Borough Commands.
HMIC, HMIP and the IPCC share a commitment to decency and fairness in police custody facilities and have a mutual interest in judgments on the conditions for and treatment of detainees in those establishments.
This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) sets out the working arrangements between the IPCC, and HMIC and HMIP in relation to HMIC/HMIP joint inspections of police custody facilities only.
