Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007

Section 33.  Duty to notify certain changes

67.Individuals on either list are required to provide the Scottish Ministers with any change in the individual’s name, address or gender or any other prescribed change within one month of such change taking place. It is an offence to fail to do so. This is intended to help to prevent a listed individual from changing their identity and attempting to re-enter the workforce. (Section 50 places a similar duty on scheme members but with a longer timeframe, a lower penalty and no requirement to notify change of address.)
