The parole process is largely the same for all prisoners who are referred to the Parole Commissioners for consideration of their suitability for release. There are slightly different procedures involved in the consultation on the variation, amendment or cancellation of licence conditions and in the review of recall decisions. These processes will be discussed later.
The process progresses through the following stages. Please click on each stage for further information.
