What is the DBS?
The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) was formed from the merger of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority.
Disclosure and Barring Service Checks allow employers to make informed recruitment decisions by revealing whether an employee has a criminal history. However, the service is only available to registered employers who are authorised to ask an applicant (with their consent) to divulge their criminal history.
Types of DBS CheckThere are three types of DBS Checks: Basic, Standard and Enhanced
A Basic Check will contain details of any unspent convictions and conditional cautions on an applicant’s
A Standard Check provides details on an applicant’s spent and unspent convictions as well as any cautions, warnings and reprimands.
An Enhanced DBS expands on the Standard Check but also provides any additional information the local police consider to be relevant to the application.
A Basic Check can be requested by anyone living in the UK, and an employer may ask an individual to request their own check.
If an individual is eligible, Standard and Enhanced Checks must be applied for by the employer on behalf of an employee. These checks are most commonly required in jobs where the individual will be working with vulnerable adults or children.
Also, if required, an employer will need to request an Enhanced Check with list which will confirm the individual’s name doesn’t appear on either the children’s or adults’ DBS barred lists.
DBS Check Results
Once the check is complete, a DBS certificate will be generated with the applicant’s results. A ‘clear’ result on Enhanced or Standard Check means the individual does not have a criminal history. Getting a clear result on a Basic DBS means the applicant may still have spent convictions which they are not obliged to divulge.
All employer checks can be applied for online using uCheck’s quick and simple registration form.
