New BSA Incident Reporting Requirements – Effective Immediately
July 02, 2019
When an injury, illness, or other incident occurs during a Scouting activity, the safety of our youth is top concern. It is essential that we all help mitigate potential impacts by following mandatory reporting requirements.
To better enable this, a new online form has been put in place at the national level. The form is available to councils and volunteers.
Online incident reports on serious youth-protection violations, membership standards infractions and medical treatment beyond first-aid will need to submitted within 72 hours. The process for submitting reports has been streamlined and simplified so please ensure you, your leaders, your troop, etc. comply with these requirements.
