Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007 (Transitory Provisions in Consequence of the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006) (No.2) Order 2009 comes into force

Implementation date: 12 October 2009

The Order prevents a loophole from occurring from 12 October 2009. It ensures that the fact that a person is included on a barred list under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 is revealed on an enhanced disclosure and that a person included on the children's barred list is barred from taking up a childcare position in Scotland. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
