From the date of commencement of the legislation on 27 April 2016, it is a criminal offence to allow anyone to engage in work with children or vulnerable adults, without having them vetted first.

The law sets out circumstances that require vetting, defined as:

Any work or activity which is carried out by a person, a necessary and regular part of which consists mainly of the person having access to, or contact with, children.
