Disclosure Scotland keeps a list of people unsuitable to do regulated work with children and a list of people unsuitable to work with protected adults.
The lists are separate, although people can be on both lists.
If Disclosure Scotland adds someone to one or both of these lists, it is known as being 'listed'.
If you're listed
If you’re listed on one of these lists, you’re barred from working with the vulnerable groups covered by that list.
For example, if you’re listed as unsuitable to work with children then you’re not allowed to do regulated work with children.
If you’re only listed as unsuitable to work with children you can still work with protected adults and vice versa.
It’s a criminal offence to do regulated work with the vulnerable groups you’re listed for. It's also against the law for an organisation to employ a listed person in regulated work they’re barred from.
If you’re listed then you’re not eligible for PVG scheme membership for that type of work.
If you were already a PVG scheme member before you were listed, Disclosure Scotland will end your membership for that type of work.
