12/08/2008 - The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides for the deprivation of liberty of people lacking capacity to consent to the arrangements made for their care or treatment, who are receiving care or treatment in care homes and hospitals, where authorisation under section 4A of and Schedule A1 to the Act exists.

Where it appears that a person who lacks capacity is detained, or is likely to be detained, in a care home or hospital, the managing authority of the care home or hospital must request an authorisation from the supervisory body. Managing authority" is defined in paragraphs 176, 177 and 179 of Schedule A1 to the Act. The identity of the supervisory body is determined in accordance with paragraphs 128, 180 and 182 of Schedule A1. In the case of a care home, the supervisory body will usually be the local authority in which the person is ordinarily resident and in the case of a hospital, it will usually be the relevant Primary Care Trust for the area in which it is situated or the Primary Care Trust that commissions the care or treatment.

On receiving such a request the supervisory body must ensure that various assessments are carried out in relation to the individual concerned in order to determine whether it is appropriate to grant the authorisation. The supervisory body must select people to carry out those assessments in accordance with paragraph 129 of Schedule A1 and may only select people who are eligible in accordance with these Regulations.

These Regulations, together with the Act, provide the eligibility requirements for people who carry out the assessments.

These Regulations come into force on 3 November 2008.
