Public Consultation - The Regulation of Surveillance Etc. Bill 2006 Codes of Practice 5 October 2006

The Regulation of Surveillance Etc. Bill 2006 will provide a statutory basis for the authorisation and use by law enforcement and other public authorities of covert surveillance, agents, informants and undercover officers. It will regulate the use of these techniques and safeguard the public from unnecessary invasions of their privacy.

The Department of Home Affairs wishes to progress to Tynwald for Tynwald approval to two Codes of Practice under the 2006 Bill concerning every authorisation of the use or conduct by public authorities of covert human intelligence sources and covert surveillance (directed and intrusive) carried out under the Bill.

In accordance with the 2006 Bill the Codes must go through a period of consultation and in this connection the Department would like to invite comments. Copies of the draft documents may be obtained from the Department’s Head Office at 88 Woodbourne Road, Douglas; telephone 01624 694300; email generalenquiries.dha@dha.gov.im or from the government website at www.gov.im

Comments should be submitted in writing to Rosemarie Dawson, Legislation Manager, at the above address or via email to rosemarie.dawson@gov.im by no later than noon on 26th October 2006.
