If an individual does not take steps to renew their disclosure within 30 days (60 days for Scotland and BSO), the Commissioner in the hierarchy who is closest to the individual’s primary role will be contacted to inform them and ask them to take action to suspend the individual for non-compliance.
If this is the case, it will be the Commissioner who is closest in the hierarchy to the individual’s primary role who will be contacted initially. Subsequent Commissioners up the hierarchy will then be contacted if no action is taking by the previous Commissioner. For example, if an individual’s primary role is a District Explorer Scout Commissioner, it will be their District Commissioner who is initially contacted to ask to suspend them for non-compliance. If no action is taken the CC (England and Northern Ireland), AC (Wales) or RC (Scotland) will then be contacted. If no action is taken by them, the relevant Commissioners up the hierarchy will then be contacted until it reaches the Country Commissioner.
