Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups (Prescribed Criteria and Miscellaneous Provisions) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 1 April 2010

The Regulations amend the criteria that determine whether or not a person should be included automatically in the adults' barred list or the children's barred list, to include offences under the law of any of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man that would amount to an equivalent specified offence, and changes in relation to four groups of sexual offences. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
