Gender Representation on Public Boards (Scotland) Act 2018

Schedule 1

23.Schedule 1 lists the public authorities covered by the Act and includes certain public sector bodies, colleges and Higher Education Institutions in Scotland where that body has a board that includes non-executive members who are appointed to the board. In addition, schedule 1 specifies any “non-executive member” positions which are excluded from the terms of the Act in relation to the authority in question. Where a position is excluded under schedule 1, it does not count as a ‘non-executive member’ position as defined by section 2. As a result, excluded positions do not count for the purposes of the gender representation objective at section 1 and an appointing person is not required to take action under sections 3 and 4 in relation to any such excluded position.
