Section 87 Notification of proposal to include person in barred list

532.Section 87 amends the 2006 Act by inserting an additional duty and conferring a further power on the ISA in circumstances where it proposes to bar an individual from working with children or vulnerable adults. In such circumstances, this section requires the ISA to notify any person who is registered under section 32 of the 2006 Act with respect to the individual concerned that the ISA is proposing to bar him or her and to provide reasons why. Section 87 also empowers the ISA to notify any other person who is permitting the individual to engage in regulated or controlled activity of the proposal to bar and the reasons why. A further notification must confirm whether the individual has been barred or not. Once the ISA has decided that it proposes to bar someone, it must give him or her eight weeks to make any representations before it can make its final barring decision. If the person is working with children or vulnerable adults during this time, notification under this section allows the employer to be aware of the potential risk so that it can consider whether it needs to take any action.

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.
