Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020

Section 78: Withdrawal from Scheme when under consideration for listing

165.Section 78(2) inserts a new section 59A (Withdrawal from Scheme when under consideration for listing) into the PVG Act. This new section is contingent on Ministers having removed an individual from the PVG Scheme under section 59 of the PVG Act (where the scheme member has applied to be removed from the register and Ministers are satisfied that the scheme member is not carrying out a regulated role), and the removal occurring while the individual was under consideration for listing in the children’s list or the adults’ list or both. Ministers can decide whether to continue with the consideration case after removal takes place. A decision under section 59A(2) does not amount to a decision not to list the individual for the purpose of the notification provisions under section 30(3C) or (4) of the PVG Act,

166.Subsection (3) amends section 60 of the PVG Act to require that a notice under section 60(1), advising of removal from the Scheme, must give information about any decision under section 59A(2) where appropriate.
