RIPA forms

Decisions about using regulated investigatory powers must be recorded as they are taken.

This is the case for:

  • applicants seeking authority to undertake regulated conduct
  • authorising officers and designated persons who consider and decide whether to grant authority or give notice for that conduct

Adapting RIPA forms

Public authorities may use these forms or adapt them to include corporate logos or images; or combine them with the review and renewal, or renewal and cancellation forms.

However, if public authorities adapt these forms for their own purposes - to record extra information that is not strictly necessary to ensure and demonstrate compliance with RIPA - the additional local requirement should be clearly distinct from the statutory recording of RIPA considerations and decisions.
