Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020

Section 17: Further information for certain purposes: PVG scheme members

39.Section 17 provides for further information to be included in a Level 2 disclosure in cases where the applicant is a PVG scheme member and the purpose of the disclosure is to enable or assist another person to consider the applicant’s suitability to do a regulated role. Consideration of suitability is further defined by section 68. Ministers must include on the disclosure any further information about the applicant, in addition to the information which must always be included in a Level 2 disclosure in terms of section 8.

40.The further information which must be disclosed is: confirmation that the applicant is a scheme member for the regulated role of the type to which the Level 2 disclosure relates; whether Ministers are considering the applicant for listing under the PVG Act and, if they are, whether any standard conditions have been imposed on the applicant; and whether any prescribed civil court orders are in force against the applicant.

41.In cases where a scheme member participates in the Scheme for both types of regulated role, but the purpose of the disclosure only relates to one type, the Level 2 disclosure must not include information that is only relevant to the other type of role.
