Disclosure Scotland have been working closely with the Scottish Government regarding the current situation concerning the COVID-19 pandemic.
To help the prioritisation of processing applications as of Monday 30th March, 2020, Disclosure Scotland will no longer be accepting paper applications.
- All applications now need to be done via the website by Countersignatories of Registered Bodies only.
- The applications will then be processed by Disclosure Scotland through a priority service
- Disclosure Scotland will then email us a notification of the outcome, wherever possible, prior to receiving the paper certificate in a quicker time frame
- If it is not possible for Disclosure Service to email notification of the outcome, either you will have to wait for the paper certificate to be issued or Disclosure Scotland will send out a notification stating that they have been unable to prioritise the application at this time, and that they are unable to give a time frame for completion of the application
As it stands the list of prioritised roles remains:
- Social work
- Social care
- Prisons and justice
