RIPA Policy and Procedure Toolkit (November 2012)

Major changes to the local authority surveillance regime (under RIPA) come into force this today.

  • Local authorities will need to obtain Magistrates’ approval for all surveillance done under RIPA.
  • Directed Surveillance will be subject to a new serious crime test

For detailed discussion on the changes please see our blog:

Now is the time to revise your RIPA polices and procedures and make your staff aware of the new rules. Ibrahim Hasan, one of the UK’s leading writers and trainers on public sector surveillance, has developed a RIPA procedures and guidance toolkit to assist you. Why reinvent the wheel?

The toolkit includes an updated version of our previous RIPA Forms Guidance document, which was bought by over one hundred different organisations. In addition there are detailed guidance notes on deciding when surveillance is caught by RIPA, how to authorise it and what to do about surveillance which is not regulated by RIPA. The toolkit is written in straight forward language (avoiding legal jargon) and includes flowcharts to assist understanding. For more information click on the link below:

There is a 20% discount for those who bought the previous RIPA Forms Guidance (now updated and included in this toolkit.)
