EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which come into force on 1st April 2010 amend the Crime and Disorder (Prescribed Information) Regulations 2007 (“the 2007 Regulations”) to bring references up-to-date, to omit one category of information sharing and to include a new category of information sharing.

The 2007 Regulations prescribe the information that relevant authorities are obliged to disclose to other relevant authorities under section 17A of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

These Regulations update references to the National Incident Category List, the Home Office Notifiable Offences List and the Fire and Rescue Service Incident Recording System. The latest National Incident Category List in the National Standards for Incident Recording Instructions for Police Forces in England and Wales and the latest Home Office Notifiable Offences List is available from the Home Office, 2 Marsham Street, London SW1P 4DF. The Fire and Rescue Service Incident Recording System is available from the Department of Communities and Local Government, Eland House, Bressenden Place, London, SW1E 5DU and is available online at http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/fire/pdf/irsquestionslists.pdf.

These Regulations remove from the Schedule of the 2007 Regulations the requirement on local authorities to disclose details of racial incidents as defined by Best Value Performance Indicators, as local authorities are no longer required to collect this information.

These Regulations also prescribe the information that must be shared by providers of probation services.
