Policing and Crime Act 2009

Section 83 Monitoring application

516.Section 83 amends provisions in section 24 of the 2006 Act relating to an application to become subject to monitoring. Section 24(1) states that an individual must make a monitoring application in order to become subject to monitoring (in effect register with the Vetting and Barring Scheme established by the Act). Section 24(10) previously provided that the “form and manner” of an application would be prescribed in regulations.

517.This amendment allows the Secretary of State to determine the form, manner and content of the application form. This allows the Secretary of State to amend the application form without needing to make secondary legislation.

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.
