Disclosure Scotland

Disclosure Scotland helps employers make safer decisions when they're recruiting people. It also makes sure unsuitable people don't 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.

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), Disclosure Scotland has invoked business continuity plans to prevent any disruption to our safeguarding services.

We prioritise checks for coronavirus (COVID-19) response workers. You will not have to pay for their disclosures. This will remain in place until midnight on Friday 25 December 2020.

This may mean applications for people working in other roles take longer than expected.

A Bill has been introduced that may make disclosure legislation simpler and less confusing. Find out about the Disclosure (Scotland) Bill.

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