Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020

Section 61: Fees

123.This section allows Ministers, by regulations subject to the negative procedure, to prescribe fees for the exercise of their functions under Part 1. For example, fees may be imposed by regulations in connection with applications relating to accredited bodies, disclosure products, disclosure requests, and related applications (such as for removal of a conviction). The regulation-making powers allow for different fees, including annual or recurring fees, to be prescribed for different purposes, and for the reduction, refund or waiver of the prescribed fee in prescribed circumstances (see subsection (3)). Ministers need not consider any application unless the fee that is provided for by regulations in relation to the application is paid in the manner provided for in the regulations (see subsection (5)).
