What is checked in a DBS check?

A DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check was previously known as a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check and dependent on the level will indicate an individuals unspent/spent convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings. It may also include additional information held by the DBS/Police relating to an individual’s suitability for employment.

How long does it take for a DBS check to come back?

A DBS check will typically be completed within 48 hours or less. If requested online and the check is clear, then a downloadable notification can be viewed online. A paper copy will also be sent by the DBS to the applicant.

What is an enhanced DBS?

An Enhanced DBS check is a criminal record check at Enhanced Disclosure level, which is a more thorough check of an individual’s background information. Only certain roles are eligible for Enhanced DBS checks, typically those working with children, young people and/or vulnerable adults.

When did CRB checks become DBS checks?

CRB checks became DBS checks at the end of 2012, when the Criminal Records Bureau and the Independent Safeguarding Authority closed and the Disclosure and Barring Service was created to replace them.
