The Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (Barring Procedure) Regulations 2008
Date:3 OCT 2008

This Order made under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (the Act") makes transitional provision in relation to those subject to existing restrictions relating to working with children or vulnerable adults. The Order requires the Independent Barring Board ("IBB") established under section 1 of the Act to include, or consider including, those subject to existing restrictions in the new barred lists. The individuals included in the new barred lists will not be barred from engaging in regulated activity relating to children or, as the case may be, vulnerable adults, until section 3(2) and (3) of the Act (bar from engaging in regulated activity) comes into force. The existing restrictions are to remain in place until then.

Articles 2(3) and 4(3) provide that regulation 2 of the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (Barring Procedure) Regulations 2008 which governs representations to IBB applies in relation to representations made under these articles.

This Order comes into force on 7 April 2008.
