At present Compass should only be used to record adults (ie people over 18).
The only reason for adding someone who is not yet 18 to Compass is to start the application for a disclosure check. (This may be necessary for example when they are planning to go to camp on / shortly after their 18th birthday.)
Once an under 18 year old has been added to Compass it is essential that a disclosure application is made without delay. The disclosure compliance procedures starts from the date they are added to Compass (even if a later start date is entered) and so the individual will only have 30 days (60 days where a paper application is required) before they become liable for suspension. (See this FAQ for more details)
For those in who use Atlantic Data the application will be automatically available to process the day after the new member has been added to Compass following the overnight sync.
Please note that you are not able to manually request a disclosure application from Compass when adding them as you would for those over 18.
In cases where someone under 18 has been added to Compass in error and needs to have their role closed, please contact the Information Centre.
