The Safeguarding and Vulnerable Groups (Northern Ireland) Order 2007, set out the original definition of regulated activity, that is the activities and work which a person who has been barred must not do.

This definition of regulated activity was amended and scaled back by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. We are therefore left with two different definitions in Northern Ireland.

We can usually request an Enhanced and Barred List check for individuals undertaking regulated activity as defined by the current definition set out in the attached document.

We also keep a record of the old definition for reference.
