This Order brings into force the provisions of the Crime (International Co-operation) Act 2003 (“the Act”) specified in articles 2 and 3, which relate to the mutual recognition of driving disqualifications as between the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Act gives effect to the Convention drawn up on the basis of Article K.3 of the Treaty of European Union on Driving Disqualifications signed on 17th June 1998 (EC 98/C 216/01) (“the convention on driving disqualifications”).
These provisions will come into force on the date on which the convention on driving disqualifications applies to both the United Kingdom and Ireland. This will be 90 days after the later of the notifications from these two Member States has been deposited with the Secretary General of the Council of the European Union, under Article 15(4) of the convention. This date will be notified in the London, Edinburgh and Belfast Gazettes. The date will also be notified on the Department for Transport website.
Article 3 commences the repeal of provisions in the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 by section 91(2) and Schedule 6 of the Act.
