Fire (Scotland) Act 2005

Section 82 – Pre-commencement consultation

122.Section 82 sets out that where consultation is required under a provision in the Act and before that provision comes into force consultation takes place, any such consultation will count as consultation required by and to the extent set out under that provision. In effect this will allow consultation prior to Royal Assent to be treated as consultation under the relevant provision. An example where this may be the case is preparation of the Framework Document.
