Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order makes transitional provisions. Persons providing the support service mentioned in article 2(3) are deemed on 22nd December 2003 to have registered that service under Part I of the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001 (asp 8). Article 2(2) provides the circumstances in which a service will cease to be deemed to be registered. Deemed registration is to last for six months or, where the provider has applied to the Care Commission for registration, for a further six months.

The Order also revokes the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001 (Transitional Provisions) Order 2003 (S.S.I. 2003/574) which is defective.
