Update your PVG Scheme member details

Last updated: 13 March 2017

Disclosure Scotland is working with PVG Scheme members and registered organisations to review and update member details. This helps makes sure Disclosure Scotland's data about PVG Scheme members is accurate.

They are contacting all PVG Scheme members to ask them to review their personal details and confirm that:

  • they still wish to be PVG Scheme members and their details are correct
  • they wish to be PVG Scheme members but need to update their details
  • they are no longer doing 'regulated work' and wish to leave the PVG Scheme
Regulated work includes many types of work with children and protected adults. You should be a member of the PVG Scheme if you do this type of work.

If you are a PVG Scheme member

If Disclosure Scotland contacts you by letter or email (from DSnoreply@disclosurescotland.gsi.gov.uk), you should reply to let them know whether you still want to be a member of the PVG Scheme and whether your details have changed.
