In the legal system, the term "remand on bail" means that a defendant is released on bail with certain conditions, such as residency restrictions, according to HowToLaw. In the U.S. legal system, this arrangement is more often called release on conditions, according to Lawyers.com.

Conditions for bail, or remand with bail, may include terms of release that require the defendant to attend an educational program, abstain from drugs and alcohol and surrender any firearms to law enforcement officials, according to Lawyers.com. Other conditions may include a curfew, not contacting the victim of the crime and checking in with the police on a scheduled basis. If a person fails to follow such conditions, she forfeits her bail, according to Nolo.
