How Does it Work?
It is perhaps useful to explain how the disclosure process works.
The process is undertaken by Disclosure Scotland, which is an Executive Agency of the Scottish Government providing services to the public on behalf of Scottish Ministers.
A critical element and legal requirement of the disclosure process involves validating the information and identities of those applying for a disclosure.
In the case of large companies and organisations this is usually undertaken in-house using Personnel or HR Department staff who have been vetted by Disclosure Scotland and are registered as authorised signatories for this specific purpose.
In the case of smaller businesses or individuals, this task is undertaken by an Umbrella Body registered and regulated by Disclosure Scotland and their signatories are also vetted for this purpose. Absolute Disclosure appears on the list of Umbrella Bodies on Disclosure Scotland's website and they provide disclosure services for a range of companies across the whole of Scotland.
The company provide a range of bespoke services to meet business and individual requirements. They ensure that applicants are eligible to apply for the role they are undertaking. They check each application is free of errors and satisfy the identity criteria required by Disclosure Scotland. This attention to detail ensures a ‘right first time’ process, eliminates unnecessary and avoidable delays and reduces the time taken to process the application.
Their current turn around time for applications is currently less than 21 days provided their are no anomalies.
