Vetting and barring scheme registration on hold for 'fundamental remodelling'
Registration under the vetting and barring scheme for those working with vulnerable people in England has been put on hold while the system is "fundamentally remodelled" by the Government.

Voluntary registration with the Independent Safeguarding Authority for new employees and job-movers who work with children and vulnerable adults was due to start on 26 July.
But registration has been halted and the scheme will be remodelled following complaints from businesses and community groups that the proposed system was disproportionate, overly burdensome and infringed civil liberties.

The remodelling of the scheme will be co-ordinated by the Home Office in partnership with the Department of Health and the Department for Education.

New recruits to jobs were due to register with the Independent Safeguarding Authority from 26 July under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006. Under the original timescale, employers were required from 1 November to check that workers were registered. Employees already engaged in a regulated activity and who have not moved into a new role with a new employer, were then due to apply for registration from 1 April 2011, with mandatory registration coming into force on 31 July 2015.
