Consultation description

The operation by prosecutors of investigation powers within POCA are subject to guidance issued by the Attorney General and the Advocate General for Northern Ireland in a code of practice. The existing codes need updating due to certain provisions in the Serious Crime Act 2015 and the full extension of POCA powers to Northern Ireland.

POCA provides for a statutory consultation on a new code of practice and on any amendments to existing codes. The codes will then be subject to parliamentary approval before coming into force.
