Investigatory powers

On 30 December 2016, the Investigatory Powers Act (IP Act) went in to force and will govern the use and oversight of investigatory powers by law enforcement and the security and intelligence agencies.

Since its introduction in November 2015, techUK has submitted oral and written evidence to three parliamentary committees scrutinising what has become the IP Act as well as commenting extensively in the media on the tech sector’s view on the Act. techUK’s submissions outlined significant concerns with the draft Bill and highlighted key areas of improvement necessary for the Bill to generate the confidence and trust necessary for the exercise of surveillance powers.

techUK will continue commenting on the implementation of the Act, particularly in relation to the publication of its draft Codes of Practice. To get involved with techUK’s work on the IP Act, please contact Talal Rajab
