The Cabinet Office is conducting a review of Part 1 of the Civil Contingencies Act (2004) (“CCA”), the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 (Contingency Planning) Regulations 2005 and the statutory guidance, Emergency Preparedness. We are delivering this review through the CCA Enhancement Programme (CCAEP).
The CCAEP began in December 2008 and has a phased delivery. Policy development work for Phase 1 of the programme was completed in October 2009, although implementation will run until early 2010. It focused on improving the standard and consistency of implementation of the existing CCA framework.
