Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Adults with Incapacity (Recall of Guardians' Powers) (Scotland) Regulations 2002 (“the 2002 Regulations”) and are in consequence of the commencement of section 60 of the Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 (asp 10) (“the 2007 Act”) which amends Part 6 of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 (“the Act”) in respect of the provisions on guardianship orders. They also update the forms to provide for the adult’s “named person” to be included in the list of those who must be consulted and notified of a recall of a guardian’s powers.

Regulation 2(2)(a) amends Schedule 1 to the 2002 Regulations to reflect the change in section 60(11) of the 2007 Act which restricts recall of welfare guardianships by the Mental Welfare Commission to those where incapacity is by reason of mental disorder.

Regulation 2(3)(a) amends Schedule 2 to the 2002 Regulations to reflect the new section 73A of the Act inserted by section 60(12) of the 2007 Act (which provides that a local authority may recall a guardianship where its chief social worker is the guardian).

Regulations 2(2)(b) and 2(3)(b) provide that the adult’s “named person” must be consulted where there is an application to the Mental Welfare Commission or the local authority for recall of a welfare guardianship.

Regulations 2(4) and (5) amend Schedules 4 and 5 of the 2002 Regulations to provide that the adult’s “named person” must be notified by the Mental Welfare Commission or the local authority where there is an application to recall a welfare guardianship.

(3)

(4)

The Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 (Modification of Enactments) Order (S.S.I. 2005/465), Schedule 1, paragraph 28(2) inserted “named person” in section 73 of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 as one of those persons to whom intimation of an application for recall should be given.
