Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations are made in consequence of the commencement on 26 July 2004 of provisions of Part VII of the Care Standards Act 2000 establishing a list of persons considered unsuitable to work with vulnerable adults (“the list”).

Regulations 2 to 7 of these Regulations amend a number of Regulations made under the Care Standards Act 2000 and the Children Act 1989 (“the existing Regulations”). The existing Regulations require a criminal record certificate that is less than three years old to be available in respect of the providers, managers and certain staff of the undertakings to which the Regulations relate (save for the Domiciliary Care Agencies (Wales) Regulations 2004 which do not include such an age-limit). Where the subject of a certificate is a person in respect of whom it may be ascertained whether he or she is included on the list, the existing Regulations provide that the certificate must detail whether the person is so included.

The amendments made by these Regulations to the existing Regulations provide that, where a criminal record certificate was available on 26 July 2004, any requirement for it to detail whether the subject of the certificate is included on the list does not apply.
