(b)where a person who employs or proposes to employ an individual to provide care to a child under section 17A of the 1989 Act requests the funding local authority to ascertain whether the individual is included in the list kept under section 1 of the 1999 Act (or certain other lists mentioned in section 7 of the 1999 Act) the local authority shall ascertain whether the individual is included in any of those lists;

(c)where a local authority is required to ascertain whether an individual is included in any of the lists mentioned in (b) above it is sufficient for the authority to satisfy itself that, on a date within the last twelve months, the organisation which supplied the individual ascertained whether he or she was so included if the authority also obtains written confirmation of the facts as ascertained by the organisation.
