EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

Section 62(2B) of the Criminal Justice and Services Act 2000 (c. 43) provides that a person may not be made responsible for the monitoring of individuals under section 62 of that Act (Release on licence etc.: electronic monitoring conditions), unless they are of a description specified in an order by the Secretary of State.

Article 3(a) sets out the description of persons who may be made responsible for the monitoring of individuals subject to an electronic monitoring condition on licence in England and Wales.

Article 3(b) sets out the persons who may be made responsible for the monitoring of individuals who are subject to Home Detention Curfew and have transferred to Scotland on the basis that they are to be treated as though they are still subject to the law of England and Wales (restricted transfer).

Article 3(a)(ii) sets out a new responsible person for the purposes of Section 62(2B) and the rest of Article 3 re-enacts the provisions of article 4 of the Criminal Justice (Electronic Monitoring) (responsible Person) (No. 2) Order 2014, which has now been revoked by article 4(a).

The responsibility of the person in the instrument listed in article 4(b) ends on 31 March 2018 and it has therefore not been consolidated into this order.
