Section 68:  Appeals to the Tribunal

172.This section gives individuals the right of appeal to an independent Tribunal, defined in section 121(1) as the Tribunal established under the Protection of Children Act 1999. Individuals will have a right of appeal against decisions by the Council, in respect of registration, (for example, a decision not to register them or to remove them from the register). Such decisions could affect an individual’s ability to secure employment so access to an independent tribunal is essential.
