Energy Act 2013

Section 85: Inquiries

418.This section gives the ONR the power to arrange for an inquiry to be held, where it considers it necessary or desirable for any of its purposes. However, the Secretary of State’s approval must be given for an inquiry to take place (see subsection (1)). In addition, any such inquiry must be held in accordance with regulations made by the Secretary of State (see subsection (3)). Regulations here may confer powers on the person holding the inquiry (or anyone assisting) to enter premises to acquire information or take evidence on oath and summon witnesses.

419.Unless provided otherwise in regulations, the inquiry must be held in public and the report arising from the inquiry published (subsections (4) and (5)(b)). No inquiry is to be held under the Fatal Accidents and Sudden Deaths Inquiry (Scotland) Act 1976, into a matter arising is Scotland which causes the death of a person, unless the Lord Advocate directs otherwise (subsection (8)).
