Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020

Section 41: Falsification of a Level 1 or Level 2 disclosure

83.Section 41 replicates the falsification offences in section 123 of the 1997 Act and section 65 of the PVG Act in respect of the new Level 1 and Level 2 disclosure products. It is an offence under subsection (1) for a person, with intent to deceive, to make a false Level 1 or Level 2 disclosure. It is an offence for a person to change or amend a Level 1 or Level 2 disclosure. It is also an offence for a person to use, or allow another person to use, a Level 1 or Level 2 disclosure in a way that suggests it relates to a person other than the individual who is the subject of the disclosure. Where a barred individual falsifies a disclosure record to access a regulated role, that individual would be committing this offence and the offence under section 34 of the PVG Act. Subsection (2) makes it an offence for a person to knowingly make a false or misleading statement so that they or another person can obtain a Level 1 or Level 2 disclosure. Subsection (3) sets out the penalties for an offence committed under this section.
