Police Act 1997 (Criminal Records) (Amendment No.2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2012 come into force

Implementation date: 10 September 2012

The Regulations amend the Police Act 1997 (Criminal Records) (Disclosure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008 (SI 2008/542) to give effect to the changes affecting regulated and controlled activity made by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, including ensuring that an individual working in a role that was a regulated activity before the definition was amended by the Act will be eligible for an enhanced criminal records certificate. The Regulations also limit the occasions where details of an application for enhanced disclosure is given to the Police Service of Northern Ireland. The Regulations can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
