Based on stakeholders' feedback, Disclosure Scotland are working towards implementing Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020 by 1 April 2023.
The additional time to implement these changes will mean that:
- stakeholders and customers have more time to prepare for the changes required to move to the new disclosure regime
- they will deliver their new services at a standard that maintains for the changes required to move to the new disclosure regime.
During this time, they ask that you deliver on your legal responsibilities which include:
- Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme members need to tell us if their personal details have changed
- organisations must notify Disclosure Scotland when a PVG scheme member stops doing regulated work with them
For a list of PVG members registered with your organisation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, providing your countersignatory and registered body codes.
