DBS Guidance

An employer may request a DBS check (also referred to as a disclosure check) as part of their recruitment process. These checks are processed by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

 

The types of check are as follows:

 

  • a basic check, which shows unspent convictions and conditional cautions
  • a standard check, which shows spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings
  • a enhanced check, which shows the same as a standard check plus any information held by local police that’s considered relevant to the role
  • an enhanced check with a check of the barred lists, which shows the same as an enhanced check plus whether the applicant is on the adults’ barred list, children’s barred list or both
