4. IMPLEMENT OF SEXUAL CONVICTION RECORD CHECK (SCRC)

To enhance protection of children from sexual abuse, the Sexual Conviction Record Check (SCRC)
scheme implemented by the Hong Kong Police Force provides employers with a reliable channel to
check the record when the engaging persons may undertake work that requires frequent contact with
the children or mentally incapacitated persons. Although the Academy does not have employment
relationship with staff of any outsourced Contractor, since the contracted services meet the criteria of
child related work, the Academy would like to request your site staff to be deployed in our campus to
undergo the check, and request your office to access the check result through the Auto-Telephone
Answering System, then to pass the check result to the Academy in written format on the condition
that the Privacy Ordinance is duly observed. Prior approval from the relevant staff for such
arrangement should be obtained. All in all, the purpose of the requirement is to protect children in our
Academy and through the scheme your office could ascertain whether your employees have any
sexual conviction records, so that your office may make decisions relating to staff appointment on a
fully informed basis.

5. CRIMINAL CONVICTION RECORD CHECK

The Trainer warrants and declares that he/she do not have any previous criminal convictions for
offences relating to minors, or physical abuse of another person, in Hong Kong or any other country
or territory.

Upon ISF’s request, the Trainer must provide a satisfactory Criminal Conviction Record Check from
the Hong Kong Police Force to the Academy within one month after the signing of this record and
prior to undertaking any service with the Academy. The Trainer must report to the Academy forthwith
any criminal proceedings against after the commencement of this record and your record shall be
terminated if the Trainer is convicted of any sexual or criminal offence in any jurisdiction that would
preclude the Trainer from working with children.
