Details

To assist Parliament in scrutinising the Investigatory Powers Bill (and at the recommendation of the Joint Committee), the government is publishing drafts of 6 statutory codes of practice that will be made under the act.

These codes of practice address many of the committees’ recommendations by providing details of how the powers and obligations will work in practice. The codes will be approved by Parliament and will have statutory force.

These draft versions of the codes were published to aid scrutiny of the bill during its parliamentary passage. They have now been superseded by the versions published for public consultation in February 2017.
