Health and Social Care Act 2008


Section 89: Publication of information relating to enforcement action etc.

286.Section 89 enables regulations to be made which will either authorise or require the Commission to publish details of enforcement action it has taken. The regulations may set out what information the Commission can or must publish in each instance, as well as when and how it must publish it. This will enable the Commission to make information available to the public about the action it has taken using its powers under Part 1.

287.If information is to be published about warning notices, the regulations must allow the people to whom the notices were given to make representations to the Commission before the information is published. This is because there is no right of appeal in respect of a warning notice.
