Disclosure Scotland

Disclosure Scotland helps employers make safer decisions when they're recruiting people. It also makes sure unsuitable people do not work with vulnerable groups, including children.

Find out more about how we work and our corporate publications. Publications also include our board and committee minutes.

If you live in Scotland, find out how to apply for our types of disclosure.

The Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020 received Royal Assent on 14 July 2020. The new laws aim to make the disclosure process in Scotland simpler and easier to understand. Find out more about what will change.

If you live in England or Wales, apply for your criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
