In its latest business plan the Council announced that it will begin the development of a guideline or guidelines on sexual offences  and on sentence discounting during the 2018-21 period. On 16 May 2019 the Council announced it intends to develop multiple guidelines on sexual offences beginning with rape, sexual assault and indecent images of children.

After the completion of stage 7, all approved guidelines move onto the monitoring and review stage.
