To keep under review the Scottish Government's policy for managing the consequences of major disruptive incidents in Scotland, including civil contingencies planning, and to report to Cabinet as appropriate.


CSC-SGoR is a standing committee which meets as required to review the Scottish Government's arrangements for dealing with civil contingencies. If the situation requires, the Committee may also be convened by Scottish Ministers in response to specific events. In such cases the Commitee will:

  • Set the Scottish Government's strategic response priorities;
  • Ensure that the necessary resources of government are being brought to bear to support responders in dealing with the incident; and
  • Where there are national consequences, identify:
    - the national priorities for handling the incident; and
    - the desired national outcomes.
