List 99, POVA & POCA Background Checks

If your organisation is employing, or supplying staff who will be working with children or vulnerable adults, you have a duty of care to ensure the integrity of those staff and to check that they have not been convicted of any offence against these groups, or have been placed on a list that specifically prohibits them working with such groups. List 99, POVA and POCA checks will highlight any areas for concern.

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It has now been replaced by the Vetting & Barring Scheme (VBS), which is managed by the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).

POCA Check

POCA stands for the Protection of Children Act 1999. The list was managed by the Department for Children, Schools & Families (DCSF) on behalf of the Department of Health (DH), and was a list of people banned from working with children.

It has now been replaced by the Vetting & Barring Scheme (VBS), which is managed by the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
