Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups (Prescribed Criteria) (Transitional Provisions) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008 come into force

Implementation date: 16 June 2008

The Regulations prescribe the criteria that are to have effect for the purposes of the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups (Transitional Provisions) Order (Northern Ireland) 2008, Articles 3(7) and 5(7). Anyone meeting these criteria will not be given the right to make representations as to their inclusion under the Order in the barred lists (these are the lists maintained by the Independent Barring Board under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups (Northern Ireland) Order 2007, Article 6).
