Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exclusions and Exceptions) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2020. SSI 2020/45

In Force: 28 February 2020 This Order amends the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exclusions and Exceptions) (Scotland) Order 2013 so that extends, with exceptions, to: disciplinary proceedings against a constable; any question put to assess the suitability of a person for a "relevant office or employment" (meaning: constables, persons appointed as police cadets to undergo training with a view to becoming constables, police custody and security officers and naval, military and air force police); and a relevant office or employment. The 2013 Order disapplies specified provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, which would otherwise prevent a person from having to disclose a spent conviction and protect that person from being prejudiced by that conviction or any failure to disclose it.
