Telecommunications (Lawful Business Practice) (Interception of Communications) Regulations 2000 come into force

Implementation date: 24 October 2000

The Regulations authorise certain interceptions of telecommunications which would otherwise be prohibited under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000. The interception has to be by or with the consent of a person carrying on a business (which includes the activities of government departments, public authorities and others exercising statutory functions) for purposes relevant to that person's business and using that business's own telecommunication system. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
