A PVG is an example of a criminal background check, managed by Disclosure Scotland.  

For your Florence profile, if you have a PVG certificate that has been issued within the last 6 months, we can accept this whilst you are completing the registration process. However, we will require a new PVG for you, which you will need to obtain within 6 months of registering with Florence. To ensure that your new PVG is obtained within the required timeframe, we will ask for payment before your registration with Florence is complete. 

If you do not have a new certificate within this time, your account will be placed on hold until we have this document for you. 

You will also be asked to confirm each year that your certificate remains clear and there have been no changes to its status.
