Disclosure Scotland's legal frameworks

Disclosure Scotland is an Executive Agency of the Scottish Government. This means it has to comply with strict legal requirements in the way that it works.

Scottish Ministers decide how Disclosure Scotland operates. This includes:

  • its application processes
  • how application forms look
  • whether you apply online or with a paper form

The following 'Determination of form' publications give more details about the laws that govern the disclosure and PVG scheme membership application process.

Disclosure Scotland’s framework document gives more information about how it works.
