Level 1

  • this product will replace the current basic disclosure under the Police Act 1997
  • available to any individual aged 16 and over, for any purpose on payment of the prescribed fee
  • this product will include notification requirements under Part 2 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003

Level 2

(e.g. work as accountants)

  • this disclosure product will replace all standard disclosures and some enhanced disclosures under the Police Act 1997
  • available to an individual aged 16 and over for a prescribed purpose, where that purpose is connected to an accredited body, and on payment of the prescribed fee

Level 2 with suitability

(e.g. prospective adoptive parents)

  • this disclosure product will replace certain enhanced disclosures under the Police Act 1997
  • available to an individual aged 16 and over for a prescribed purpose, where that purpose is connected to an accredited body, and on payment of the prescribed fee

Level 2 PVG

  • there will still be a product equivalent to the statement of scheme membership (known as a confirmation of scheme membership), which does not include conviction information
  • available to an individual aged 16 and over and mandatory for those aged 16 and over carrying out regulated roles with children and adults
