PART 11FINAL PROVISIONS

Savings for certain privileges

71.—(1) Nothing in these Regulations is to be taken as requiring any person to produce any documents or records if he or she would be entitled to refuse to produce those documents or records in any proceedings in any court on the grounds that they are the subject of legal professional privilege, or as authorising any person to take possession of any documents or records which are in the possession of a person who would be so entitled.

(2) Except as provided in paragraph (3), nothing in these Regulations may be construed as requiring a person to answer any question or give any information if to do so would incriminate that person or that person’s spouse.

(3) A person must comply with a request from the Agency to give information pursuant to regulation 55(2), notwithstanding that to do so may incriminate that person or that person’s spouse, but information given in response to such a request may not be given in evidence in any criminal proceedings against that person or that person’s spouse.
