Vetting and Barring Scheme put on hold

The Government has announced that they are halting registration with the Vetting and Barring Scheme (VBS) which was due to start on 26 July. The Government has stopped registration to allow it to remodel the scheme. We don't have any further details yet of the scope of the review of the scheme, which is being co-ordinated by the Home Office, Department for Education and Department of Health. Further details will be announced shortly. Although registration with the scheme has been stopped for the time being, the requirements which came into force in October last year remain in place.
