How to apply
Once you’re ready to apply, email DSAPRegistration@disclosurescotland.gov.scot. They'll send you an application pack.
Your application needs to include proof of identity for:
- the registered person (lead signatory)
- anyone nominated to be a countersignatory
Disclosure Scotland will carry out checks to make sure the lead signatory and countersignatories are suitable to handle disclosure information.
It costs £75 each year to be a registered body. This fee covers the lead signatory and up to 4 countersignatories.
Adding more countersignatories costs £15 each per year. To add or remove a countersignatory, email DSAPRegistration@disclosurescotland.gov.scot
Code of Practice
Organisations applying to register with Disclosure Scotland must follow Disclosure Scotland's Code of Practice (PDF).
This tells organisations about their responsibilities and how they must use disclosure information.
Free PVG checks for volunteers
Some organisations can get free PVG checks for their volunteers. The volunteers must be doing regulated work with children or protected adults.
You must register as a qualifying voluntary organisation to get free PVG checks.
