The Educational Excellence Everywhere white paper sets out the government's plans to implement a national database of all those involved in governance by extending the information collected via Edubase.
From September 2016 the Academies Financial Handbook will require academy trusts to provide information about their members, trustees and those on local governing bodies. This will also be the case for maintained schools.
This governance data is not publically available and will be encrypted within the system with access restricted to a small number of users who need it to fulfil their official responsibilities.
