Commencement Orders

This section lists the commencement orders yet to be applied to the whole Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing. Where applicable the commencement orders are listed under two headings, firstly those that bring some part of the Act you are viewing into force and secondly, those that bring into force legislation that affects some part of the legislation you are viewing. If you are viewing a prospective version or there is a prospective version available there may be commencement orders listed here that are relevant to the provision you are viewing.

5 Supplementary provisions as to orders under sections 3 and 4.E+W+S+N.I.

(1)The provisions of Part I of Schedule 2 to this Act shall have effect—

(a)with respect to the procedure to be followed before an order is made by the Director under section 3 or section 4 above; and

(b)in connection with the making and coming into operation of any such order.

(2)Where an order is made by the Director under section 3 or section 4 above against a partnership, it may, if the Director thinks it appropriate, have effect also as an order against some or all of the partners individually, and in such a case the order shall so provide and shall specify the names of the partners affected by the order.

(3)Nothing in section 62 of the M1Sex Discrimination Act 1975, section 53 of the M2Race Relations Act 1976 or Article 62 of the M3Sex Discrimination (Northern Ireland) Order 1976 [F1or Article 51 of the Race Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 1997] (restriction of sanctions for breaches of those Acts and [F2those Orders]) shall be construed as applying to the making of an order by the Director under section 3 above.

(4)In any case where—

(a)an order of the Director under section 3 above specifies a conviction as a ground for the order, and

(b)the conviction becomes spent for the purposes of the M4Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 or any corresponding enactment for the time being in force in Northern Ireland,

then, unless the order also specifies other grounds which remain valid, the order shall cease to have effect on the day on which the conviction becomes so spent.

(5)In any case where—

(a)an order of the Director under section 3 above specifies as grounds for the order the fact that the person concerned committed discrimination by reason of the existence of any such finding or notice as is referred to in paragraph 2 of Schedule 1 to this Act, and

(b)the period expires at the end of which, by virtue of paragraph 3 of that Schedule, the person concerned would no longer be treated for the purposes of section 3(1)(b) above as having committed discrimination by reason only of that finding or notice,

then, unless the order also specifies other grounds which remain valid, the order shall cease to have effect at the end of that period.
