Home Office announces new measures

Recently, the Home Office announced new measures to protect the vulnerable with the launch of the new Vetting and Barring Scheme later this year.

The changes planned for 12 October 2009 and the new safeguards that will be introduced to enhance the protection of children and vulnerable adults are outlined below.
From 12 October 2009:

  • The creation of two new ISA barred lists. These lists will replace the existing List 99 and POCA, POVA Lists.
  • Access to these new ISA lists will be available on request as part of an Enhanced CRB check.
  • Eligibility for Enhanced CRB checks will expand to include more employment and voluntary positions; such roles will be known as regulated positions.
  • Standard CRB checks will no longer be available for those working with children or the vulnerable.
  • There is no change to the current application form or application process.
