No. Enforcement action will not be taken if, after having made thorough inquiries, the Master licensee did not know that the person was an ineligible person and could not reasonably have been expected to know.

It’s recommended that before providing a person to undertake prescribed work, Master licensees should as a minimum:

  • conduct a national criminal record check on the person, and
  • check SLED’s public register of licences which will display if the person has had a licence revoked, and
  • ask the person if they are an ineligible person.

The Master licensee must keep sufficient records to demonstrate that thorough inquiries have been made.
