Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000/Part I Chapter II
Acquisition and Disclosure of Communications Traffic Data. Part I Chapter II sets up a formal system for the serving of notices on telcos and ISPs to obtain "communications data". The old ad hoc system based on s29(3) of the Data Protection Act 1998 is no longer used.
