Authoritative Version
Other as made
This instrument modifies the National Consumer Credit Protection Regulations 2010 (Regulations) to remove references to terminology that was used in [CO 02/184]. The instrument replaces those references with terminology used in the Charities Act 2013, which is also used in Instrument 2016/813 (which replaced [CO 02/184]). This clarifies that the exemption in the Regulations continues to operate as intended and remains sufficiently clear for charities and consumers.
