Rule 26: Special kinds of licensable bodies


The SRA does not accept applications for any order to be made by it under section 106 of the LSA from any licensable body.

Guidance note


The LSA provides the special kind of licensable bodies mentioned in section 23 with a grace period during which they are not required to apply for authorisation as a licensed body. However, during the grace period, such bodies may apply for authorisation under these rules but will not be able to request special treatment under section 106 until this section is commenced.
