How our services will change

Our services are changing by 1 April 2025 as we implement a new law, the Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020.

This includes changes to disclosure services and PVG scheme membership.

We're working with stakeholders to prepare for the changes.

Learn more about what's changing.
