Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007

Section 30.  Notice of listing etc.

60.All individuals included on a list under this Act are barred from undertaking that type of regulated work. However, an individual may be barred from regulated work because of inclusion on another list in a different jurisdiction deemed to be equivalent by the Scottish Ministers (see section 92). Section 30 requires the Scottish Ministers to notify an individual, all relevant employers and regulatory bodies of the fact that the individual is barred from undertaking regulated work (whether or not that barring originates from being included on a list under this Act). Details may also be provided relating to the circumstances that led to the individual being barred, as the Scottish Ministers think appropriate. The same duties apply to consideration for listing and any subsequent determination not to list the individual.

61.It is anticipated that the list of relevant regulatory bodies at section 30(7) will be expanded to cover the eight health regulatory bodies identified at section 8(2), 17(5)(c) and 19(3) through a section 60 order under the Health Act.
