The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC) is a non-departmental public body in Scotland, established by the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 (as amended by the Crime and Punishment (Scotland) Act 1997).

The Commission has the statutory power to refer cases dealt with on indictment (ie solemn cases) to the High Court of Justiciary. This was extended to include summary cases by Statutory Instrument on 31 March 1999, immediately before the Commission took up its role in April 1999.

Though funded by the Scottish Executive Justice Department investigations are carried out independently of Scottish Ministers, with the Commission being accountable to the Scottish Parliament on matters of finance and administration.
