Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (Prescribed Period and Appropriate Officer) (Wales) (Revocation) Regulations 2010 (SI 2010/1724)
The Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (the 2006 Act) provides the legislative framework for a new vetting and barring scheme for people who work with children and vulnerable adults. Section 13 of the 2006 Act requires that a check be made in relation to any person appointed to the governing body of an educational establishment. The Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (Prescribed Period and Appropriate Officer) (Wales) Regulations 2010 (SI 2010/1291) prescribe, for the purposes of s.13, the period within which that check must be carried out and the appropriate officer responsible for carrying it out. The Secretary of State is conducting a review of the vetting and barring scheme. As a consequence of that review s.13 of the 2006 Act will not be fully commenced on July 26, 2010. Consequently, these Regulations revoke the 2010 regulations before they come into force on July 26, 2010.
