The Investigatory Powers Tribunal Rules 2000 sets out, in greater detail than the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, the procedures the IPT should follow.

They include further detail on:

  • how the tribunal should proceed in its investigations and determinations
  • how it should receive evidence
  • in what circumstances it may disclose material provided to it
  • how it should determine proceedings, including oral hearings
  • how it should notify a complainant of the outcome

The IPT is content with the draft update to the rules, and a letter from the president of the IPT to the Home Secretary welcoming the consultation can be found at
