Section 17 Crimes (Criminal Organisations Control) Act 2012
Cessation of Interim Control Orders

Have you been made the subject of an interim control order, and you are wondering how long they last?

Section 17 of the Crimes (Criminal Organisation Control) Act 2012 states that an interim control order remains in force until it is revoked, withdrawn, dismissed, or until a control order is made in court or you are personally served with a copy of the control order.

If you have any questions regarding the duration of an interim control order, our expert criminal lawyers can provide further information.

17 Interim control order ceases when final control order made or served

(1) An interim control order remains in force until:

(a) it is revoked, or

(b) it ceases to have effect under subsection (2), or

(c) the application for a control order confirming the interim control order is withdrawn or dismissed, whichever first occurs.

(2) If a control order is made confirming an interim control order (whether with or without variation), the interim control order ceases to have effect:

(a) if the person to whom it relates is present in court-when the control order is made, or

(b) in any other case-when the person is served personally with a copy of the control order.
