EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Disclosure and Barring Service (Core Functions) Order 2012 to remove various functions relating to the issue of a criminal conviction certificate (within the meaning of section 112 of the Police Act 1997) from that Order, so that they are no longer core functions within the meaning of paragraph 8 of Schedule 8 to the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. This will allow those functions to be delegated by the Disclosure and Barring Service under paragraph 7 of Schedule 8 to the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.
