Regulation 19: Additional measures
The SRA may receive at any point during the currency of your accreditation CAEFs which raise a concern about your competence to conduct criminal advocacy. Where the SRA receives any such concern, either because you have provided such information or otherwise, the SRA may do one or more of the following:
Where you have applied for accreditation or re-accreditation at level 1 and your application has been refused, you will not be entitled to accept any instructions to conduct criminal advocacy and the SRA may recommend you to take specific steps in accordance with regulation 19.1 before you reapply for accreditation or re-accreditation as appropriate.
Where the SRA has required you to take specific steps under regulation 19.1(b), the SRA shall assess the outcome of that action before deciding upon any pending application or further application that you may have submitted or any further action that the SRA intends to take.
