DEPRIVATION OF LIBERTY FORM No. 27
TERMINATION OF A REPRESENTATIVE’S APPOINTMENT
The representative’s appointment expires when the standard authorisation comes to an end. Therefore,
the selection and appointment process must be done afresh if a further standard authorisation is required
because the existing one is coming to an end.
The representative’s appointment may also sometimes terminate before a standard authorisation expires.
Where that happens, the supervisory body must appoint a replacement as soon as is practicable after it is
aware that a vacancy has arisen or will arise.
