Further information about the Clergy Discipline Measure may be found here.
- Penalties are published only after a finding of misconduct and where the person complained about has consented to the imposition of a penalty. No publication is made where a complaint is dismissed, or where the complaint is dealt with other than by the imposition of a penalty.
- Penalties are normally removed from this list after 5 years or, if the penalty is imposed for a shorter or longer period, when the penalty expires.
- Complaints which are dealt with by a tribunal are published on the Church of England website, here.
