The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 (Commencement No.1) Order 2008 - 401 (C.15) was made on 14.2.08. It brings into force from 6.4.08 the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 to the extent that it is not already in force, other than section 2(1) (d) (duty owed to a person in custody etc. to be a relevant duty of care for the purposes of the Act) and section 10 (power to order conviction etc to be publicised). Until such time as section 2(1) (d) is commenced, section 20, which abolishes the existing common law offence of gross negligence manslaughter by corporations, will not apply in respect of custodial duties.
