Details of the sensitive procedure for trans people completing a Disclosure Scotland application form.

Extract from document

Disclosure Scotland operates a special application process for transgender persons to assist in ensuring discretion is afforded to such individuals who do not wish their previous gender (and names) to be disclosed to the person or organisation requesting the Disclosure.

The disclosure process that Disclosure Scotland carries out is based on names, current and previous. The process requires any previous names be disclosed to Disclosure Scotland. This is intended to take account of names changed though marriage or legal name changes. With an understanding of the need of the trans people to have complete privacy in relation to their past life, the following special arrangements have been made to deal with Disclosure applications from them.
