Dear Senior Statistician, 

 Exemption from practice T3.7 for all Office of the Police Ombudsman Northern Ireland statistical releases for security reasons 

 Thank you for contacting my team about exempting the Office of the Police Ombudsman NI from practice T3.7 of the Code of Practice of Statistics, which requires the name and contact details of the lead statistician to be included in published statistics. I am happy to confirm exemption from this practice in the Code for security reasons. In these circumstances, it is acceptable to provide a generic email and telephone number. 

 I am copying this letter to Siobhan Carey, CBEChief Executive and Registrar General NISRA and 

Ruth Fulton, Head of NISRA Statistical Support Branch. 

 Yours sincerely  


Ed Humpherson 

Director General for Regulation
