The Serious Crime Act 2015 (Commencement No. 3) Regulations 2015 was published on 20 October 2015.

 These Regulations are the third commencement regulations made under the Serious Crime Act 2015 (c. 9) (“the 2015 Act”).

Regulation 2 brings into force on 31st October 2015 sections 74 and 75 of the 2015 Act, which insert new sections 5B and 5C into the Female Genital Mutilation Act 2003 (c. 31) to create a duty to notify the police of female genital mutilation in England and Wales. Regulation 2 also brings into force on the same day the consequential amendment in paragraph 60 of Schedule 4 to the 2015 Act that relates to these provisions.

Regulation 3 brings into force on 10th November 2015 section 79 of the 2015 Act which inserts a new section 40CB into the Prison Act 1952 (c. 52), making it a criminal offence for a person, without authorisation, to throw any article or substance into a prison. The reference to “throwing” includes doing anything from outside the prison that results in the article or substance being projected or conveyed over or through a boundary of the prison so as to land inside the prison.
