Consultation on controlled activity under the vetting and barring scheme

Close date: 9 July 2010

The Department for Children, Schools and Families consults on whether to minimise or remove completely the category of controlled activity in relation to children and vulnerable adults in the vetting and barring scheme. This could be done by moving some posts into regulated activity and removing others from the scheme's scope. The consultation is taking place because the issue of how useful the controlled activity category is has arisen.
