There has been some debate about recording assessments and I found this under the Govt. site (UK)
1. Do claimants have a legal right to have their face-to-face assessment audio recorded? Claimants can ask to have their face-to-face assessment audio recorded and all requests will be accommodated where possible. However, claimants do not have a legal right to a recorded assessment and it should be noted that neither DWP nor CHDA has a legal obligation to provide an audio recording service or equipment. Any attempt to covertly record an assessment will result in immediate termination of that assessment
You have to ask first before the assessment so no good asking when you arrive. Clients own recording equipment can be used but must meet acceptable standards and be able to provide 2 copies at the end. One for the assessors.
The equipment is portable so can be used for home visits if requested in advance.
I hope this is useful. x
