Search Legislation

Policing and Crime Act 2009

Section 24AC Functions of risk advisory groups

397.This section creates a statutory requirement that the RAG produce a risk report for the aerodrome and sets out the nature of the information that the risk report must contain. Subsection (4) requires that the report be revised from time to time so that the assessments are kept up to date. This is to ensure that the risk register is kept in such a way as to ensure that it properly reflects the prevailing security position at an aerodrome.

398.Subsection (1) provides that qualifying aerodromes must prepare a risk report within two months of the day by which the RAG is required to be established. In the case of an aerodrome which is “a directed aerodrome” when the new provisions are commenced, section 24AL requires that a RAG be established at the aerodrome within one month of commencement. The effect is therefore that a risk report must be produced for an aerodrome within three months of commencement.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
