The following Corporate Crime practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Although the Investigatory Powers Act 2016 (IPA 2016) repealed and replaced the majority of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA 2000), it does not alter the rules regulating the use of covert intelligence sources which remain governed by RIPA 2000.
The government has updated the two RIPA 2000 Codes of Practice relating to covert intelligence sources to reflect changes to the oversight of investigatory powers made under IPA 2016, including oversight by the Investigatory Powers Commissioner. Note that an updated draft Covert Human Intelligence Sources Code of Practice has been published to assist parliamentary consideration of the Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill which was introduced into the House of Commons in September 2020. Information on the Bill can be found in Practice Note: Bills tracker for corporate crime practitioners—Parliamentary session commencing December 2019—Regulation of intelligence gathering. Note that the draft Code does not replace the existing Code at this time. The draft code will be formally updated and consulted on once the Bill has been enacted. A copy of the draft Code and the accompanying factsheets and case studies can be found here.
For information of the oversight arrangements in place for the use of powers under the IPA 2016 and RIPA 2000, see Practice Notes: Scrutiny of intelligence gathering and the role of commissioners under the Investigatory Powers Act 2016 and Investigatory
