Trafficking and Exploitation Prevention Orders

Trafficking and Exploitation Prevention Orders (TEPOs) are now available for use by the courts as a means of protecting the public from perpetrators of human trafficking and exploitation. They can be used to impose restrictions on people who have been convicted of trafficking and exploitation offences.

These restrictions include stopping someone employing staff, working with children/vulnerable people or travelling to certain countries for a minimum of five years.

Breaching a TEPO will be a criminal offence.

Trafficking and Exploitation Risk Orders (TEROs) – which can be granted where a person has demonstrated a risk of committing a relevant offence – will come into force in October.

“We will continue to make Scotland an increasingly hostile place for those who treat other human beings as commodities. These new powers for the police and courts will help to further protect the public from harm,” said Justice Secretary Michael Matheson. “We have already strengthened the law, creating a specific offence of human trafficking for the first time. Now we are making sure that action can be taken when a person poses a continuing risk.”
