  • faster turnaround in disclosure production
  • significant financial savings for organisations
  • a more efficient service for you

Taking a digital first approach, the new online PVG service will become the main application process for most PVG applications. An initial trial of the new service saw Disclosure Scotland process thousands of PVG applications from over 250 organisations.

Those who took part in the trial have seen key benefits, with:
