What is a Basic CRB Check?
A Basic CRB Check is a check of any conditional cautions and unspent convictions, under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. A Basic CRB Check can be obtained by anyone living or looking to live and work in England and Wales.
Just so you know – a conviction can be deemed ‘spent’ after a certain period of time has passed. This period of time varies based on the severity and nature of the offence, as well as the length of the sentence received. A conditional caution is deemed to be ‘spent’ after 3 months.
Why would I need an Individual Basic Criminal Record Check?
As well as looking to obtain a Basic CRB Check for employment, you may also need to have a Basic Check to get a visa or personal alcohol licence. Individual Basic CRB Checks may also come in handy if you wish to do voluntary work.
CRB Checks for self-employed individuals can be very useful. Many people who are self-employed apply for a Basic CRB Check as evidence of their character and background.
