The Regulations set out the fees for joining the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme in relation to regulated work with children or adults and for disclosure requests made under ss.52 to 54 of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007.
The Order makes provision to ensure that the vetting and barring schemes set up under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007, the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 and the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups (Northern Ireland) Order 2007 (SI 2007/1351) interact appropriately.
The Regulations prescribe that where an organisation is notified that an individual has been barred from doing regulated work with children or adults, it is prohibited from permitting the individual to do regulated work and must remove the individual from the regulated work.
The Regulations allow access to disclosure records to assess the suitability of individuals for inclusion on health service lists prepared by virtue of s.17P, or for the purposes of part II, of the National Health Service
(Scotland) Act 1978.
The Regulations prescribe that where an individual is doing regulated work that involves transporting children or protected adults to an educational institution or public or private hospital under an agreement with a relevant body, for example an educational establishment, the relevant body can seek sight of the individual's disclosure record.
The Order prohibits an employer from requiring an individual to supply it with information that he or she has obtained from the Scottish Ministers under s.7 of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007.
The Order lists exceptions to what amounts to “child minding” and “day care for children” under the Children and Families (Wales) Measure 2010, which provides that people cannot act as childminders or provide day care for children unless they are registered with the Welsh Ministers.
