How to Respond

The consultation is in respect of the Code providing guidance on the exercise of the functions, rather than the powers conferring the functions. Respondents should be aware of this distinction in making specific comments and suggestions. The Code is intended to be self-explanatory and so we would welcome views on any passages that are confusing, ambiguous or lacking in clarity. In particular, we would welcome answers to the following questions:

Question 1

The draft Code will affect how proper persons in Scotland exercise their functions under Chapter 3 of Part 8 of POCA. Do you have any comments to make in relation to the practical guidance contained within the Code?

Question 2

Do you feel that the draft Code could have an adverse impact on you or your organisation?

Question 3

Do you feel that the draft Code provides adequate guidance to a proper person on how to discharge their functions?

Question 4

Is there anything missing from the draft Code that should be added? (If so, please specify below.)

Question 5

Is there anything in the draft Code that should be deleted or changed? (If so, please specify below.)
