Section 5: Offences outside England and Wales

18.This section amends section 22 of the 1989 Act, a provision which enables international banning orders to be made in respect of offences committed outside England and Wales which correspond to those in Schedule 1 to that Act.  The section enables the period within which a corresponding overseas offence may be committed to be longer than that for the equivalent offence in Schedule 1.  The section places similar duties on the courts to those mentioned in connection with section 1.  The section also simplifies the process under which details of convictions for corresponding football-related offences committed outside England and Wales are provided.
