Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008

Section 47: Stop notices: procedure

131.This section sets out certain procedural requirements that the order must include when granting a regulator the power to serve stop notices. In particular, a notice must contain the grounds for issuing the notice, the person’s rights of appeal and the consequences of non-compliance. Where, after service of the notice, the regulator is satisfied that the person has taken steps specified in the stop notice, the order must require a regulator to issue a “completion certificate”. The person will also have a right of appeal against a regulator’s refusal to issue such a certificate.

132.Section 47 also sets out the minimum grounds for appeal against both the imposition of the stop notice and the regulator’s refusal to issue a completion certificate.
