EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations bring into effect statutory guidance about the performance by certain specified authorities listed in Schedule 6 to the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 (c. 6) (“the Act”) of their duty under section 26(1) of the Act. The section 26(1) duty requires each specified authority, in the exercise of its functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.

Regulation 3 brings into effect new guidance issued under section 29 of the Act to specified authorities in the further and higher education sectors.

The new guidance supersedes certain sections of previously issued guidance that came into effect on 25th March 2015 (the “March guidance”). Regulation 3 brings into effect revised guidance, which is identical to the March guidance other than that it does not include those sections which are superseded by the new guidance referred to in regulation 3(2)(a)-(d).

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
