Special Restrictions on Adoptions from Abroad (Ethiopia) Order 2018: SI 2018/517

Special Restrictions on Adoptions from Abroad (Ethiopia) Order 2018: SI 2018/517
Provision is made in the Special Restrictions on Adoptions from Abroad (Ethiopia) Order 2018 to impose a statutory suspension on the adoption of children from Ethiopia by British residents. The Order will come into force on 21 May 2018.

Section 9(4) of the Children and Adoption Act 2006 (CAA 2006) provides for the Secretary of State by order to declare that special restrictions are to apply for the time being to the bringing of children into the UK from a country or territory outside the British Islands in certain cases involving adoption.

CAA 2006, s 11(1) provides that those special restrictions are that the appropriate authority is not to take any step, which might otherwise have been taken, in connection with furthering the bringing of children into the UK in those cases. CAA 2006, s 11(2), provides that the relevant steps may be taken if the prospective adopters satisfy the appropriate authority (defined in CAA 2006, s 11(4)) that the authority should take those steps despite the special restrictions.

By this order, the Secretary of State declares that special restrictions are to apply to Ethiopia.
