Legal Aid Impact Test

The policy does not in itself create any new legal rights.

The Regulations include enforcement measures which could in some cases lead to prosecution. These are linked to existing mechanisms within the Health Protection Coronavirus (Requirements) (Scotland) Regulations 2021. The intention is not to criminalise individuals in the sense of attendees at the premises and events at which Covid Status Certification is required and at present it is envisaged the policy will have minimal to no impact on Legal Aid.
