“(1) If an approved supplementary code is revised—

(a) the code before and after the revision are treated as the same code for the purposes of this Part, and

(b) the code ceases to be an approved supplementary code unless subsection (2) or (4) applies.

(2) This subsection applies if the supplementary code, in its revised form, has been approved under section (Approval of a supplementary code).

(3) If subsection (2) applies the approved supplementary code, in its revised form, remains an approved supplementary code.

(4) This subsection applies for so long as—

(a) a decision is pending under section (Approval of a supplementary code) on an application for approval of the supplementary code in its revised form, and

(b) the revisions to the code have not taken effect.

(5) If subsection (4) applies the supplementary code, in its unrevised form, remains an approved supplementary code.

(6) The Secretary of State may revise a designated supplementary code only if the Secretary of State is satisfied that the code, in its revised form, meets the conditions set out in the DVS trust framework (so far as relevant).

(7) If a designated supplementary code is revised, the code before and after the revision are treated as the same code for the purposes of this Part.”—(Sir John Whittingdale.)

This amendment sets out the consequences where there are changes to a recognised supplementary code and, in particular, what needs to be done for the code to remain a recognised supplementary code.
