" as set out by the Youth Criminal Justice "
"The person is a youth as set out by the Youth Criminal Justice Act and can not be identified. "This sentence is from my kid's newsletter.
What function is "as " ? is it a preposition? but it is followed by a pharasal verb "set out".
What is the meaning of "set out"? I checked the dictionary of Pherasal verbs( Cobuild), the clarification is "if you set out to do something, you start taking action or making plan with the intention of achieving a particular result" . it doesn't make sense.
