INAP 3.1.4 Authorised electronic versions — Rules and regulatory material [effective from 6th December 2009]

(1) An electronic copy of any Rules or regulatory material is an authorised electronic version if —
(a) it is an electronic copy of a version authorised by the Regulatory Authority that is accessed at, or downloaded from, an approved website in a format authorised by the Chief Executive Officer, by notice published on an approved website; or
(b) it is an electronic copy of a version authorised by the Regulatory Authority and is in the format in which it is authorised by the authority.

(2) It is presumed, unless the contrary is proved —
(a) that an internet site purporting to be an approved website is an approved website; and
(b) that an electronic copy of any Rules or regulatory material accessed at, or downloaded from, an approved website and purporting to be authorised by the Regulatory Authority (however expressed) is an authorised electronic version of the Rules or regulatory material; and
(c) that any other electronic copy of any Rules or regulatory material purporting to be authorised by the Regulatory Authority (however expressed) is an authorised electronic version of the Rules or regulatory material; and
(d) that an authorised electronic version of any Rules or regulatory material purporting to be a version of the Rules or regulatory material as made or issued (however described) correctly shows the Rules or regulatory material as made or issued; and
(e) that an authorised electronic version of any Rules or regulatory material purporting to be a version of the Rules or regulatory material as in force (however described) at any time or during any period correctly shows the Rules or regulatory material as in force at that time or during that period.
Examples for par (e)
1 A statement 'Effective: 1 October 2008' or 'Effective: 1/10/08' in an authorised electronic version of any Rules means that the version correctly shows the Rules as in force on 1 October 2008.
2 A statement "Effective: 7 April 2008—30 September 2008' or 'Effective: 7/4/08—30/9/08' in an authorised electronic version of any Rules means that the version correctly shows the Rules as in force during the period from 7 April 2008 to 30 September 2008 (both dates included).
