ISA report revises rules and reins in its scope

15 December 2009

Following a request from the Government to review the degree of contact with children which should trigger the requirement to register with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA), the Chair of the ISA, Sir Roger Singleton, released his report, Drawing the Line yesterday.

To those who have been critical of the scope of the vetting and barring scheme, it will come as some surprise that the scheme has been relaxed – removing the need for an estimated 2m people to register. Is this a decision made with the best interests of children in mind, or is it a politically motivated decision designed to make the highly criticised ISA appear more workable?
