Section 30: Interim risk orders

133.Section 30 provides that a sheriff may make an interim TERO while the main application under section 26 is being determined. The sheriff may make such an order if the sheriff considers it just to do so (subsection (1)) and such an order may contain prohibitions or requirements (or both) in relation to the person in respect of whom the order is to have effect (subsection (2)). Those prohibitions or requirements may relate to things to be done or not done in any part of Scotland or anywhere outwith Scotland (subsection (3)).

134.Subsection (4) provides that an interim TERO will only have effect for a fixed period, specified in the order, and will cease to have effect on the determination of the main application if that fixed period has not already expired.

135.Subsection (5) allows for an application for variation or discharge of an interim TERO (or a requirement or prohibition in the order) to be made to a sheriff in the sheriffdom of the sheriff who made the interim order by the person in respect of whom the order was made or the chief constable (subsection (6)).
