Terrorism Act 2006: notice-and-take-down requirement

Organisations that provide websites must be aware of a new notice-and-take-down requirement contained within the Terrorism Act 2006, which came into force on 13 April 2006, and ensure that they have procedures to handle any notices served on them under the Act.

Sections 3 and 4 of the Act enable a police constable to give written notice to an organisation that a particular statement they publish electronically is unlawful, because it relates to terrorism.

If the organisation does not remove or amend the statement within two working days (only Saturdays, Sundays, Bank Holidays, Christmas Day and Good Friday are excluded), then it will be considered to have endorsed the statement and will thereafter be liable to prosecution for encouraging terrorism or disseminating terrorist publications.

An organisation served with a notice is also required to take all reasonable steps to prevent future re-publication of the same or similar statements, including an investigation into who published the statement and removing that person’s ability to publish in future.
