Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020

Section 42: Unlawful disclosure of a Level 2 disclosure

84.This section makes it an offence for a person to whom a Level 2 disclosure is made available or disclosed to unlawfully disclose it to another person. Subsection (2) provides that lawful disclosure occurs in the circumstances permitted under section 43 and will otherwise be unlawful. It is also an offence for a person to whom an unlawful disclosure was made to disclose the Level 2 disclosure to another person. These offences are needed to ensure that sensitive information contained in Level 2 disclosures is not shared unnecessarily. Subsection (4) sets the penalties for an offence committed under this section.
