    Religious Life Safeguarding Service

– Religious Life Groups bring their own charism and richness to life in the Catholic Church and safeguarding arrangements do not currently fit this. To better serve the needs of Religious Life Groups, a new dedicated safeguarding service will be created to replace the current alignment arrangements with Dioceses in England and Wales.

National Tribunal Service (NTS) will address the canonical matters connected to clergy  discipline and canonical offences.

It will exercise jurisdiction exclusively in the canonical forum, although its competence will not be limited simply to the role of adjudication.  NTS’s operational activity will extend to preliminary case evaluation as well as formation in professional regulatory procedures, evidence and other matters of canonical penal law (substantive and procedural).

This will provide confidence that published standards are being upheld, and offers the possibility of enhanced impartiality, transparency and decision making in line with the practice of other professional regulatory bodies.
