Consultation on spent criminal convictions and cautions

The Faculty Office is consulting on its decision to apply for a statutory instrument to allow us to know spent convictions and cautions of notaries and notary applicants. Full details of the proposals are set out in the consultation document which includes details of how to respond.

The consultation closes at 5pm on 20th October 2022 to allow the Faculty Office to meet the Ministry of Justice’s deadline to proceed ahead with legislation.
