List 99, POVA & POCA DBS Checks

List 99

Now known as Section 142 of the Education Act 2002

List 99 was maintained by the Department for Children, Schools & Families (DCSF) and contained the details of people who were considered unsuitable or banned from working in schools.

Referrals for education and social work staff are now handled by the Independent Safeguarding Authority.

POVA Check

POVA stands for the Protection of Vulnerable Adults. The list was managed by the Department for Children, Schools & Families (DCSF) on behalf of the Department of Health (DH), of people banned from working with vulnerable adults.

It has now been replaced by the Vetting & Barring Scheme (VBS), which is managed by the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
