Chess Scotland Event/ PVG
Pat: “Unless the article is completely wrong then the role and responsibility of congress/tournament directors is clear, no arbiter/controller can work with a junior unless they have up to date PVG clearance that is specific to that organisation.”

Though a bit misleading, the article doesn’t make the claim as strongly as that. The ‘incidental’ clause I linked to above means that you don’t become a criminal just because a child walks into the room. I doubt the law was meant to apply to the situation of people working with the mostly adult public, certanly not on an occasional basis. If you stretch that point just a bit more you could become a criminal just by standing still if a child came up to you – as with all laws, a bit of common sense is needed as regards when it applies (especially when you hear ‘there are no exceptions’ :\ )
