Uniform Extradition and Rendition Act Law and Legal Definition

Uniform Extradition and Rendition Act was created by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Law (NCCUSL). It is designed to streamline the extradition process and provide additional protections for the person sought. This act provides two separate procedures to be used for the retrieval of wanted persons found in another state. Extradition is the traditional executive procedure. Rendition is a court-based procedure. However, this act has been adopted by only one state-North Dakota. This act is now regarded by the NCCUSL as a model act, instead of a uniform act. So it may also be known as the Model Extradition and Rendition Act.
