Amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 2001

Closed 12 Sep 2019

Opened 12 Aug 2019

Overview

The Department of Home Affairs is seeking to obtain views on the proposed amendments, by Order, to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 2001.

The purpose of the Order is to minimise the disparity between the timelines for ‘spent’ convictions found in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 2001 and those in the United Kingdom’s Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (an Act of Parliament).

What Happens Next

Following this consultation exercise, any comments arising in response to the proposed changes will be considered and amendments incorporated into the Order where appropriate.

It is then intended to submit the Order to the October 2019 sitting of Tynwald.
