Police Act 1997 (Criminal Records) (Amendment) Regulations 2010 come into force
Implementation date: 1 April 2010
The Regulations prescribe three new purposes for which an enhanced criminal record certificate may be sought. These are assessing the suitability of individuals to work in: a controlled activity in relation to children; a controlled activity in relation to vulnerable adults; or at a further education institution. The Regulations also prescribe that when an enhanced criminal record certificate is sought to assess the suitability of an individual to work in a controlled activity relating to children or vulnerable adults or at an institution within the further education sector, suitability information may be included. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
