24th May 2017: Disclosure Scotland - Web Service Indicative Notice system issue


Unfortunately Disclosure Scotland continue to have issues with the Indicative Notice (IN) functionality with our web service channel. Submissions can still be made but no early warning indicator will be sent on completion of the application. Disclosure Scotland are currently unable to ascertain the cause of this and have contacted the vendor of the system for an urgent solution.

In the meantime, Disclosure Scotland are looking into a possible workaround that may mitigate the lack of automatically generated IN's. Disclosure Scotland hope to have some news on this solution tomorrow at the earliest.

Disclosure Scotland apologies for the inconvenience this has caused.

16th May 2017: Disclosure Scotland system failure


Disclosure Scotland issued an alert that they are experiencing a system failure to generate the Indicative Notice for Basic level criminal record checks. This means you may receive a disclosure result without receiving the Indicative Notice email. Disclosure Services are liaising with Disclosure Scotland and their technical partners to achieve a satisfactory resolution as quickly as possible.
