This consultation seeks views on the government's plan to create a new statutory code of practice for all powers where none currently exists
There are a number of powers of entry that exist beyond the traditional enforcement used by state officials or members of private organisations who undertake administrative, public or regulatory functions.
To standardise approaches to powers of entry, and help drive transparency and accountability, the government intends to create a new statutory code of practice for all powers where none currently exists. This will provide a framework for the use of such powers across government.
