This series brings together all documents relating to the RIPA codes.
Codes of practice and guidance for making an application under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (2000).
These help public authorities assess and understand whether, and in what circumstances, it is appropriate to use covert techniques.
The codes also provide guidance on what procedures need to be followed in each case. All RIPA codes must be approved and debated in both Houses of Parliament and published.
