Adoption (Recognition of Overseas Adoptions) (Scotland) Regulations 2013 come into force

Implementation date: 3 January 2014

The Regulations (as amended by the Adoption (Recognition of Overseas Adoptions) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2013 (SI 2013/335)) identify the countries and territories whose adoptions are classed as "overseas adoptions" under s.67 of the Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007, which means that the adoptions are recognised automatically as an overseas adoption in Scotland.
