The Government plan to commence various aspects of Part five of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 in September this year. The changes in the Act were discussed at a recent meeting of the Criminal Records Bureau's sports and recreation consultative group, which includes various representatives from that sector.

Draft statutory guidance on supervision, which includes some material relating to sport, was issued for public consultation on 6 June, and comments from the sports and recreation sector would be welcome.

The Government are currently holding 11 road shows around the country to present the changes to interested parties, and it is envisaged that a representative of the sport and recreation sector will sit on the stakeholder advisory group related to these changes, which will be established soon.
