Scottish Charity Register API

An application programming interface (API) is a way for two or more computer programs to communicate with each other. 

In May 2023, OSCR launched a BETA version of an API to communicate data from the Scottish Charity Register. The API may be of particular interest to organisations who regularly use data from the register in their own systems.

If you would like to apply for access to the API, please complete this form.

For any questions on the API, please email dataresearch@oscr.org.uk
