EXPLANATORY NOTE(This note is not part of the Regulations) These Regulations prescribe, in relation to certain exempt charities in the further education sector, the body or Minister of the Crown who is to be the principal regulator of those charities. Exempt charities are, with a few exceptions such as Saint David’s Catholic College, charities within Schedule 3 to the Charities Act 2011. The principal regulator of an exempt charity must do all it reasonably can to meet the compliance objective specified in section 26(3) of the Act in relation to that charity. Further education corporations and charities connected to them are exempt charities (paragraphs 7 and 28 of Schedule 3 to the Act). The Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills is prescribed as the principal regulator of further education corporations in England and their connected charities. The Welsh Ministers are prescribed as the principal regulator of further education corporations and connected charities in Wales. (The Secretary of State for Education was prescribed as the principal regulator of sixth form college corporations, which are also in the further education sector, on 1 August 2011 (S.I. 2011/1726 ) ). The Welsh Ministers are also prescribed as the principal regulator of Saint David’s Catholic College, which is the only other institution in the further education sector in England and Wales which is an exempt charity. Sections 54 to 57 of the Act, as applied by section 58, regulate the disclosure of information by and to principal regulators. Specific rules apply under these provisions to the disclosure of Revenue and Customs information. A “responsible person” who discloses information contrary to those rules may be found guilty of an offence. Regulation 5 specifies the definition of “responsible person” that applies in relation to the principal regulators prescribed in these Regulations. An impact assessment of the effect that these Regulations will have on the exempt charities that are affected is published with the Explanatory Memorandum alongside the Regulations on www.legislation.gov.uk . (1) 2011 c.25 . For the definition of “the Minister” see section 353(1). (2) 1992 c.13 . For the definition of “further education corporation” see section 17. For the status of further education corporations as exempt charities see section 22A, which was inserted by the Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998 (c.30) , section 41(2) , and substituted by the Charities Act 2011, Schedule 7, paragraph 58. (3) Saint David’s Catholic College is designated under section 28 of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 (c.13) . The governing body of the College was incorporated and exempt charity status was conferred on it by S.I. 2005/2293 (W. 171) .
