(1)OSCR must keep a register of charities to be known as the “Scottish Charity Register” (and referred to in this Act as “the Register”).
(2)The Register is to be kept in such manner as OSCR thinks fit.
(3)The Register must contain a separate entry for each charity entered in it setting out—
(a)the name of the charity,
(b)the principal office of the charity or, where it does not have such an office, the name and address of one of its charity trustees,
(c)the purposes of the charity,
(d)where the charity is a designated religious charity or a designated national collector, that fact,
(i)a direction is given under section 11(3), 12(2) or (3), 16(6), 28(3), 30(1) or 31(5) to (9), or
(ii)a notice is given under section 31(4),
in relation to the charity, the fact that the direction or notice has been given and the date on which it was given,
(f)any other information in relation to the charity which the Scottish Ministers by regulations require to be set out in the Register, and
(g)any other information in relation to the charity which OSCR considers appropriate.
(4)OSCR must, despite subsection (3)(b), exclude the information specified in that provision from a charity's entry in the Register if, on the application of the charity (whether together with its application for entry in the Register or separately), OSCR is satisfied that including that information is likely to jeopardise the safety or security of any person or premises.
(5)OSCR must, if it is satisfied that a direction or notice of a type described in subsection (3)(e) has been complied with or no longer has effect, remove reference to the direction or notice from the charity's entry.
(a)from time to time, review each entry in the Register, and
(b)if it considers any information set out in a charity's entry to be inaccurate—
(i)amend the entry accordingly, and
(ii)notify the charity of the amendment made.
