Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007

Schedule 3: Regulated Work With Adults

205.Schedule 3 of the Act defines “regulated work with adults” and should be read in conjunction with the definition of protected adult at section 94, explained at paragraph 162 of these Notes. This replaces and expands the definition in regulation 10(2) of the Police Act 1997 (Criminal Records) (Scotland) Regulations 2006 for the purposes of eligibility for enhanced disclosure. The criteria in those Regulations is that the individual is working in a “ position... of a kind which enables[them] in the course of his or her duties to have contact with an adult at risk”. Schedule 3 is directed at identifying those in the adult work force who should be scheme members due to the degree of contact they may have with protected adults or otherwise.
