Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (Controlled Activity and Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2010 come into force
Implementation date: 31 March 2010
These Regulations specify the circumstances in which employers may permit individuals, who are not already engaged in work for the employer which is a controlled activity, to undertake work in England which is a controlled activity. The employer will either have to be satisfied that the individual is not on a barred list nor a list which predates the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 pending migration into a barred list, or have seen an enhanced criminal record certificate or a notification that the individual is not on such a list issued within the previous 90 days. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
