Standard Missives

Division C: Standard Missives


The Society fully supports the standard missive initiatives of faculties throughout the country. There are real and obvious benefits to the public and the profession in the standardisation of missives.  Relevant documents can be found in Advice & Information and accessed via the links on the right hand side of this page. Note, however that the Society does not endorse or approve any particular standard missive or other document and the provision of such links should not be interpreted as implying any such approval or endorsement.  You must exercise your own professional judgment in relation to assessing the appropriateness of any such standard missive or other document in the particular circumstances of each transaction.

A large part of Scotland is now covered by standard missives which reflect geographical and other localised differences and take account of different practices in different parts of the country.

Should any faculty wish to seek advice and guidance from the Society we are very willing to assist in facilitating the creation of additional and new standard missives in any way that we can.
