Proceeds of crime act 2002 codes of practice consultation

The aim of the consultation is to seek comments and representations on the guidance provided in four draft codes of practice.

These codes are issued to provide guidance to investigators on the use of investigation and supporting powers in the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, which have been amended in recent legislation. These are an important safeguard to ensure the proportionate and focused use of the powers.

It is important to note that we are not seeking views on the powers themselves to which the codes relate.
This consultation runs from 10 July 2013 until 30 August 2013.
