Serious Crime Prevention Orders

Oct 25, 2016

The Act of Sederunt (Rules of the Court of Session 1994 and Summary Application Rules 1999 Amendment) (Serious Crime Prevention Orders etc.) 2016 was made on 19 October 2016 and comes into force on 12 December 2016. It amends Chapter 76 of the Rules of the Court of Session Rules 1994 and the Summary Application, Statutory Applications and Appeals etc. Rules 1999 in consequence of the amendments made to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 by the Serious Crime Act 2015. These amendments extend the availability of Serious Crime Prevention Orders so that they can be made in Scotland.

The Act of Sederunt also makes changes to the Rules of the Court of Session Rules 1994 and the Summary Application Rules 1999 in consequence of schedule 1 (apart from paragraph 7) of the Criminal Justice and Data Protection (Protocol No. 36) Regulations 2014.
