Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

2Establishment and maintenance of registers

(1)It shall be the duty of each board to prepare and maintain a register of the names, addresses and qualifications, and such other particulars as may be prescribed, of all persons who are entitled in accordance with the provisions of this Act to be registered by the board and who apply in the prescribed manner to be so registered.

(2)For the purposes of this Act, a person is registered by a board, and in respect of a profession, if his name is on the register maintained under this Act by the board for that profession.

(3)The Council may, after consultation with all the boards for the time being established under this Act, make rules with respect to the form and keeping of the registers maintained by the boards and the making of entries, alterations and corrections therein, and in particular—

(a)regulating the making of applications for registration and providing for the evidence to be produced in support of applications;

(b)providing for the notification to a board of any change in the particulars entitling a person to registration;

(c)prescribing the fees to be paid in respect of the entry or retention of names on the register, being such fees as the Council considers will produce not more than the sums required to defray the reasonable expenses of the Council under this Act;

(d)authorising a board to refuse to enter a name on the register until any fee prescribed for the entry has been paid, and to remove from the register the name of any person who, after the prescribed notices and warnings, fails to pay any fee prescribed for the retention of his name on the register or fails to notify the board of any change in the particulars entitling him to registration;

(e)prescribing anything falling to be prescribed under the foregoing provisions of this section ;

and any such rules may make different provision for different circumstances. Rules under this subsection shall not come into force until confirmed by order of the Privy Council.

(4)It shall be the duty of each board—

(a)to cause its register to be printed, published and put on sale to members of the public not later than two years from the beginning of the year next following that in which the board is established; and

(b)in each year after that in which its register is first published under paragraph (a) above, to cause to be printed, published and put on sale as aforesaid either a corrected edition of the register or a list of alterations made to the register since it was last printed; and

(c)to cause a print of each edition of the register and of each list of corrections to be deposited at the offices of the Council;

and it shall be the duty of the Council to keep the registers and lists so deposited open at all reasonable times for inspection by members of the public.

(5)A document purporting to be a print of an edition of a register published under this section by authority of a board in the current year, or documents purporting to be prints of an edition of a register so published in a previous year and of a list of corrections to that edition so published in the current year, shall be admissible in any proceedings as evidence, and in Scotland sufficient evidence, that any person specified in the document, or the documents read together, as being registered by the board is so registered, and that any person not so specified is not registered by the board.
