Section 37: Urgent enforcement order: modification and revocation

143.Section 37 provides that the CAA may revoke or, with the agreement of the person to whom the order was given, modify, an urgent enforcement order, provided it has published a notice, sent a copy to the person to whom the order was given and considered any representations made about the proposal in the specified period. The notice must include the CAA’s reasons for the proposed modification or revocation. The CAA must publish a notice as soon as practicable after modifying or revoking an urgent enforcement order and send a copy to the person to whom the order was given and to appropriate industry representatives. Subsection (6) provides that the power under section 36 to confirm an urgent enforcement order with modifications (without the agreement of the person subject to it) is not restricted by the provisions of this section.

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.
