Section 174: Review of service supervision and punishment orders

356.This section requires a CO to review a service supervision and punishment order made in respect of a person under his command. The times at which such a review must be carried out are to be specified in Defence Council regulations. On a review, the CO must consider whether the order should remain in force. If he decides that it should not, he must order that it shall immediately cease to have effect.

357.Subsection (3) enables the Defence Council to make regulations about the criteria that a CO must apply when reviewing an order.

358.Subsection (4) ensures that, even if the CO terminates the order, the offender will still forfeit 1/6th of his gross pay for the period when the order was in force.
