Report of the Interception of Communications Commissioner – March 2015

Description: “I regard my principal function as being to satisfy myself, and thus to report to the Prime Minister, that the Secretaries of State and the public authorities operating under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA 2000) Part I (and to a limited extent Part III) do so lawfully and in accordance with the existing legislation. My secondary, but nonetheless important, aim is to better inform the public about what the legislation allows (or perhaps more importantly what it does not allow), how my office carries out its oversight and the level of compliance that the public authorities are achieving. ”
