Pope Urban IV renews the policy that inquisitors should absolve one another of irregularities in the pursuit of their duties, begun by Pope Alexander IV. The specific "irregularity" is being present at the torture of suspects.

This policy would come to be interpreted as formal license to continue the examination in the torture chamber itself, while the torture is going on.
