EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends sections 113CA and 113CB of the Police Act 1997 (“the Act”). These sections provide that in such cases as may be prescribed an enhanced criminal record certificate issued under Part 5 of the Act must also include suitability information relating to children (section 113CA) or protected adults (section 113CB).

Sections 113CA(2) and 113CB(2) specify what suitability information relating to children and protected adults is. Articles 2 and 3 of this order directly amend sections 113CA(2) and 113CB(2) respectively to expand the meaning of suitability information relating to children and protected adults.

Suitability information will now include whether an applicant for an enhanced criminal record certificate is subject to:

  • a sexual offences prevention order or an interim sexual offences prevention order made under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 (c.42) (“the 2003 Act”).

  • a foreign travel order made under the 2003 Act.

  • a risk of sexual harm order or an interim risk of sexual harm order made under the 2003 Act.

  • a notification order or interim notification order made under the 2003 Act.

  • a risk of sexual harm order or an interim risk of sexual harm order made under the Protection of Children and Prevention of Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2005 (asp 9).

In addition to whether an individual is subject to these orders, the suitability information will also include certain details of the orders, the date the order was made and the period for which the order has effect, as well as details of whether the orders have been varied or renewed by a further court order.
