This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).
(1)Ministers must, after making enquiries for the purpose of discovering whether any vetting information exists in relation to a new scheme member, create a scheme record for the member.
(2)Ministers must make arrangements for the purpose of discovering whether any new vetting information arises in relation to scheme members while those members participate in the Scheme.
(3)Ministers must update a scheme record if they discover any new vetting information about the scheme member to whom it relates.
(4)Vetting information is new if Ministers did not discover it as a result of earlier enquiries made in pursuance of subsection (1) or (2) in relation to the scheme member concerned (regardless of whether it existed when they made those earlier enquiries).
A scheme record is a document comprising—
(a)a scheme member’s statement of scheme membership, and
(b)vetting information about the scheme member which Ministers discover as a result of enquiries or arrangements made under section 47.
(1)Vetting information, in relation to a scheme member, is—
(a)the information referred to in section 113A(3)(a) of the 1997 Act (prescribed details of every relevant matter relating to the scheme member which is recorded in central records),
(b)if the scheme member is subject to notification requirements under Part 2 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 (c. 42), information about those requirements,
(c)information which the chief officer of a relevant police force thinks might be relevant in relation to the type of regulated work in relation to which the scheme member participates in the Scheme, and
(d)such other information as may be prescribed.
(2)Regulations prescribing information for the purposes of subsection (1)(d) may require persons holding information of the type prescribed to disclose it to Ministers for the purposes of this Act.
(1)A scheme member must give Ministers notice of—
(a)a change in the member’s name,
(b)the issue of a full gender recognition certificate to the member under section 4 of the Gender Recognition Act 2004 (c. 7), or
(c)any other change in circumstance of a prescribed type.
(2)A notice under subsection (1) must be given within 3 months of the date of the change or issue of the certificate to which it relates.
(3)An individual who fails, without reasonable excuse, to comply with subsection (1) commits an offence.
(4)An individual guilty of an offence under subsection (3) is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.
(1)Ministers must correct a scheme record if they are satisfied (following a request by a scheme member for correction, notification under section 50 or otherwise) that any information included in it is inaccurate.
(2)After correcting an inaccurate scheme record, Ministers must disclose the corrected information to—
(a)the scheme member, and
(b)any organisation for which they know the scheme member is doing regulated work.
(3)Subsection (2) applies only if Ministers have previously disclosed the inaccurate information under this Part to the scheme member or, as the case may be, the organisation.
(4)A scheme member may, in particular, request a review of any information included in a scheme record by virtue of section 49(1)(c).
(5)Ministers, on receiving such a request, must ask the chief officer of the relevant police force who provided that information to reconsider whether the chief officer still thinks that the information concerned might be relevant in relation to the type of regulated work in relation to which the scheme member participates in the scheme.
(6)Information which was considered accurate when included in a scheme record but which—
(a)is subsequently found to have always been inaccurate, or
(b)subsequently becomes inaccurate for any reason,
is to be regarded as being inaccurate information for the purposes of this section.
