Formerly known as CRB Checks, DBS Checks determine whether an individual has a criminal record. If a criminal record is found, the check will reveal the individual’s convictions and cautions.

What does a Basic DBS Check show?

A Basic DBS Check can be used for any position or purpose. It contains details of convictions and cautions from the Police National Computer (PNC), “…that are considered to be unspent under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974.”

Why do I need a Basic DBS Check?

Many sectors require new staff have a Basic DBS Check, including aviation, construction, engineering, government, healthcare, hospitality, transport, to name a few.

They are also required for certain voluntary roles and can be useful for self-employed individuals.
