Explanatory Memorandum to Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups (Northern Ireland) Order 2007

Article 53: Crown application

Article 53 provides that the duties of the Order apply to the Crown. The Crown itself may not be prosecuted under an offence in the Order but that is not the case for a Crown employee.

Each government department or other Crown body should be regarded as the regulated activity provider in relation to any regulated activity in which it is engaged.
