(This note is not part of the Order)

Part 2 of the Terrorism Act 2000 (c. 11) makes provision about proscribed organisations (including setting out offences in relation to such organisations in sections 11 to 13). An organisation is proscribed if it is listed in Schedule 2 to that Act or, in most cases, if it operates under the same name as an organisation so listed (section 3(1)).

This Order adds three organisations to the list in that Schedule. Paragraph (2) of article 2 substitutes the name of an entire organisation for the name of the part of that organisation previously listed, so that the organisation is proscribed it its entirety. Paragraph (3) adds two organisations to the list in Schedule 2 as new entries.

A full impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no, or no significant, impact on the private, voluntary or public sector is foreseen.


2000 c. 11; relevant amendments to section 3 were made by sections 21 and 22 of the Terrorism Act 2006 (c. 11).
