Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006

Section 31: Meaning of relevant information in section 30

121.This section provides for the information which will be released by the Secretary of State under section 30. The “relevant information” will indicate the individual’s status in the scheme to the applicant by showing whether the individual is subject to monitoring (under section 24) and, if so, whether the individual is undergoing assessment. In general terms, an individual is undergoing assessment if the Secretary of State has not yet completed checks and gathering of information carried out on receipt of an application to be subject to monitoring, or if the individual is being considered for barring by the IBB.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
