1. I confirm that the above information is complete and correct and that any untrue or misleading information will give my employer the right to terminate any employment contract offered.
2. Should we require further information and wish to contact your doctor with a view to obtaining a medical report, the law requires us to inform you of our intention and obtain your permission prior to contacting your doctor. I agree that the organisation reserves the right to require me to undergo a medical examination. In addition, I agree that this information will be retained in my personnel file during employment and for up to six years thereafter and understand that information will be processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

All organisations using the Disclosure and Barring Service and/or Disclosure Scotland to help assess the suitability of applicants for positions of trust and who are recipients of disclosure information must comply fully with the relevant Code of Practice. Amongst other things this obliges them to have a written policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders. This must be given to all applicants for posts where a disclosure will be requested. The Code also requires such organisations to have a written policy on the correct handling and safekeeping of Disclosure information. To assist organisations in meeting this requirement a sample policy statement on the recruitment of ex-offenders will be included with any stationery requests for Form AP2(H).
