Unlock responds to Scottish filtering consultation

by / Thursday, 19 November 2015 / Published in News & Media, Unlock publications, What DBS disclose

In September, the Scottish Government announced a consultation on a Remedial Order that they’d brought into force on the 10th September.

This, in practice, brought into force a filtering process that applied to standard and enhanced checks processed by Disclosure Scotland, similar to the filtering process operated by the Disclosure & Barring Service.

Although our work as a charity doesn’t directly extend into Scotland, we felt it was important to respond to this consultation to make a number of comments based on the approach that the UK Government took in England & Wales when it introduced a similar process in 2013, as well as raising a couple of practical considerations which we believe are important when reflecting on the current approach of the UK Government.

You can download our response to the consultation here.
