The Adoption and Children Act Register Regulations 2014 were published on 18 June 2014.

These Regulations are made under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 (“the Act”) which was amended by section 7 of and Schedule 1 to the Children and Families Act 2014. They come into force on 25th July 2014.

Regulation 4 prescribes the information that must be provided where an adoption agency is considering adoption for a child and provides information for inclusion in Part 2 of the register.

Regulation 5 provides that information must only be retained in the register for as long as necessary, prescribes when information must be removed from the register, that information in the register is kept secure and that appropriate measures are taken to prevent theft, unauthorised disclosure, loss or destruction of the information.

Regulation 6 provides for the disclosure of information from the register and prescribes when and to whom information from the register can be disclosed.

Regulations 8 to 12 amend the Adoption Agencies Regulations 2005.

Regulation 9 substitutes a new regulation 19A that prescribes the information that adoption agencies must provide about children that are suitable for adoption for inclusion in Part 1 of the register.

Regulation 10 substitutes a new regulation 30G that prescribes the information that adoption agencies must provide about prospective adopters who are suitable to adopt a child for inclusion in Part 3 of the register. It also provides that the prospective adopter’s consent must be given in writing.
