This Order is made in exercise of the powers conferred by section 11(2) and section 12(3) and (4) of the Industrial Training Act 1982(1) (“the Act”).
This Order is made to give effect to levy proposals submitted by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board(2) pursuant to section 11(1) of the Act which, as required by section 11(3) of the Act, include proposals for the exemption of employers employing a small number of employees.
The levy proposals include proposals for securing that no exemption certificates shall be issued by the Board and the amount of levy payable by employers will exceed 0.2 per cent of their relevant emoluments in respect of the base period for each levy period. Accordingly, section 11(5) of the Act applies to this Order.
In relation to the requirements set out in section 11(5) of the Act the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills is satisfied that the levy proposals are necessary to encourage adequate training in the industry and the condition mentioned in section 11(6)(a) is met.
The Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills estimates that the levy to be paid by employers in the industry exceeds one per cent of their relevant emoluments and accordingly this Order falls within section 11(7)(b) of the Act; the Secretary of State considers that the amount to be paid by employers in the industry is appropriate in the circumstances.
The Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills has consulted the Scottish Ministers as required by section 88(2) of the Scotland Act 1998(3).
