Enforcement Notices

If you are subject to an enforcement notice issued by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority, the impact on you and your business can be substantial. The Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors at Wilford Smith can provide expert legal advice on the best way to proceed, including offering guidance on whether there is scope to appeal against such notices. Our lawyers provide clients with a service that is exceptionally strategic and results driven, ensuring that you are given clear, straight-forward and jargon-free advice throughout your dealings with the HSE or local authority.
The HSE and local authorities have the power to issue two types of enforcement notice: improvement notices and prohibition notices. Improvement notices provide you with the opportunity to correct any issues identified by inspectors, while prohibition notices are issued to stop or prevent unsafe working practices identified by inspectors from continuing. If an enforcement notice is issued, it will be published to an online register by the HSE, with these records appearing for five years. There exists a nine-week delay period between the issuing of an enforcement notice and publishing to allow for an appeal to be lodged. Wilford Smith’s Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers are excellently placed to advise on whether there exist grounds for having an enforcement notice overturned, or the terms of this varied if a notice has been unfairly issued.
