Extract from Disclosure Scotland website: Commencement of Retrospective Checking

Commencement of Retrospective Checking

12 July 2012Disclosure Scotland has now completed its testing of the new PVG Database and is currently undertaking a schedule of required updates to enable a full and robust service to our customers.

However, I am pleased to announce that subject to some provisions below, the introduction of the retrospective checking will start with effect from Monday 29 October 2012. This lead-in period is to allow all of our stakeholders time to prepare and resource for any additional work as a result of the introduction of retrospective checking. 

While our system updates are progressing, I am asking that those registered bodies which have agreed a monthly retrospective checking volume with Disclosure Scotland, to submit half of their allocation for the initial 3-month period up to 31 January 2013.  I am also asking that those registered bodies, which are lower volume users of Disclosure Scotland and which do not have agreed monthly volumes, to submit half of their anticipated volumes for the same initial period.  This gradual increase in volume will allow me to be better informed regarding our system capabilities and prevent any unnecessary log-jam of applications which would lead to a reduction in the turnaround times to all of our customers. 

I appreciate that this is not an ideal situation, but I trust that you understand that we are doing everything we can to be able to provide you with a full service as quickly as possible. 

Retrospective checking will run for 3 years and it is important that registered bodies do not swamp Disclosure Scotland with applications above their allocations. The existing staff within organisations who require to be introduced into the PVG Scheme should be done so in evenly distributed monthly volumes to Disclosure Scotland over the following 36 month period.
