Renewal of authorisations and notices paras 3.38 to 3.40
Renewal of authorisations and notices
3.38 Any valid authorisation or a notice may be renewed for a period of up to one month by the grant of a further authorisation or the giving of a further notice. A renewed authorisation or notice takes effect upon the expiry of the authorisation or notice it is renewing.
3.39 Renewal may be appropriate where there is a continuing requirement to acquire or obtain data that will or may be generated in the future. The reasoning for seeking renewal should be set out by an applicant in an addendum to the application upon which the authorisation or notice being renewed was granted or given.
3.40 Where a designated person is granting a further authorisation or giving a further notice to renew an earlier authorisation or notice, the designated person should:
- have considered the reasons why it is necessary and proportionate to continue with the acquisition of the data being generated, and
- record the date and, when appropriate to do so, the time when the authorisation or notice is renewed.
-  This can include an authorisation or notice that has been renewed previously.
