Grounds of the application


What would be the grounds for making an application?

Certain companies, LLPs and overseas companies can place their officers (or a person who lives with them) at risk due to their activities. This could be due to their involvement in a particular sector of commerce or industry which may attract the attentions of activists or extremists.

Some examples of when an application may be appropriate include:

if you are an officer of a company, LLP or overseas company whose business is licensed under the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986;
if you are an officer of a company, LLP or overseas company that is a readily traceable supplier, customer or partner of a company, LLP or overseas company in the above category;
if a company or LLP of which you are an officer has been targeted by animal rights or other activists.
There is not an exhaustive list and it will depend on your own circumstances why you may make an application to restrict the disclosure of the protected information or to make an address unavailable for public inspection.

You will also need to provide evidence to support the grounds of your application and we cover this in Chapter 2 question 4.
