Section 48: Supervisory authorities: notification of barring etc in respect of children

142.This section provides the mechanism for supervisory authorities to be notified when a person is newly included on the children’s barred list or an equivalent list in Scotland or Northern Ireland, or a person ceases to be subject to monitoring in relation to regulated activity relating to children. If a supervisory authority wants to be notified in future if the person is barred or ceases to be subject to monitoring it must register an interest in that person by making an application to the Secretary of State (section 48(3)(a)). A supervisory authority may later withdraw its application in relation to the person (section 48(3)(b)). It may only register an interest in a person where it needs to be notified of changes in that person’s circumstances in connection with its functions (section 48(4)).

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.
