EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations correct the defect in the Adoption (Recognition of Overseas Adoptions) (Scotland) Regulations 2013 (“the 2013 Regulations”) and come into force on 3rd January 2014.

Regulation 3 of the 2013 Regulations provides that an adoption of a child is specified as an overseas adoption if it is an adoption effected under the law of a country or territory listed in the Schedule to the Regulations and it is not a Convention adoption.

Regulation 2 amends regulation 3 of the 2013 Regulations to make it clear that an overseas adoption as specified in that regulation will only be recognised if it is effected on or after the coming into force date of the 2013 Regulations, which is also 3rd January 2014.
