Q624: How can I get a check of my criminal records for pre-employment vetting purposes?

Disclosure Scotland provides this service in Scotland.

There are three levels of check available:

Basic Disclosure: This is the lowest level check containing details of any unspent convictions.

Standard disclosure: Mainly available to those working with children and vulnerable adults shows current and spent convictions, caution, warnings and reprimands held on Police National Computer (PNC).

Enhanced disclosure: Highest level of check for those responsible, caring for, training or supervising children or vulnerable adults contains same as above but also includes relevant and proportionate information held by local police forces.

See the website in related information for more details. The cost of each of the above is £25.

If you want a check for emigration or visa purposes then please see Q542.
