Independent Safeguarding Authority v SB & Royal College of Nursing (Intervener) [2012] EWCA Civ 977

DATE: 18 Jul 2012

When considering an appeal against a decision of the Independent Safeguarding Authority to include a person on the children's barred list, the Upper Tribunal (Administrative Appeals Chamber) was statutorily prevented from revisiting the appropriateness of an individual being included on the lists under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 s.4(3). The Authority was particularly equipped to make safeguarding decisions whereas the tribunal was designed to adjudicate upon mistakes on points of law or findings of fact.
