Giving of notices

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

24.—(1) Any notice required to be given under these Regulations to any person must be given to that person by—

(a)delivering it to that person;

(b)leaving it at that person’s proper address;

(c)sending it to that person by post at that address; or

(d)subject to paragraph (9), sending it to that person by an electronic communication.

(2) The notice may be given to a body corporate by being given to an officer of that body.

(3) The notice may be given to a limited liability partnership, Scottish partnership or unincorporated partnership by being given to a partner or a person having the control or management of the partnership business.

(4) The notice may be given to any other unincorporated body by being given to an officer of the unincorporated body.

(5) For the purposes of this regulation and section 24 of the Interpretation Act (Northern Ireland) 1954 (Service of documents) in its application to this regulation, the proper address of any person to whom a notice is to be given is—

(a)in the case of a body corporate, the address of the registered or principal office of the body;

(b)in the case of an unincorporated partnership or any other unincorporated body, the address of the principal office of the partnership or body;

(c)in the case of a person to whom the notice is given in reliance on paragraph (2), (3) or (4), the proper address of the body corporate, partnership or other unincorporated body in question; and

(d)in any other case, the last known address of the person in question.

(6) For the purposes of paragraph (5) the references to the “principal office” in relation to a company which is registered outside the United Kingdom, a partnership which is carrying on business outside the United Kingdom or any other unincorporated body which has its principal office outside the United Kingdom, include a reference, in each case, to that body’s principal office within the United Kingdom (if any).

(7) Paragraph (8) applies if a person to be given a notice under these Regulations has specified an address (“the specified address”) within the United Kingdom other than the person’s proper address (as decided under paragraph (5)) as the one at which that person, or someone on that person’s behalf, will accept documents of the same description as a notice given under these Regulations.

(8) The specified address is also to be treated for the purposes of this regulation and section 24 of the Interpretation Act (Northern Ireland) 1954 in its application to this regulation as the person’s proper address.

(9) If a notice under these Regulations to be given to a person is sent by an enforcement authority by electronic communication, it is to be treated as given only if—

(a)the person to whom the notice is given has indicated a willingness to the enforcement authority to receive notices by an electronic communication and provided an address suitable for that purpose; and

(b)the notice is sent to the address provided by that person.

(10) In this regulation—

“body corporate” does not include a limited liability partnership or a Scottish partnership; and

“electronic communication” has the same meaning as in section 4(1) of the Electronic Communications Act (Northern Ireland) 2001(1).

(1)

2001 c. 9 (N.I.); section 4(1) was amended by section 406(1) and paragraph 170 of Schedule 17 of the Communications Act 2003 (c. 21)
