DBS-Disclosure (previously CRB Checks)

What is a Disclosure?

A Basic Disclosure (known as a criminal conviction certificate in Part V of the Police Act 1997) is available to anyone, including individuals and the self-employed. It is provided by Disclosure Scotland as the DBS do not provide the same level of check. It contains details of convictions considered unspent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 or states that there are no such convictions. It is not job specific or job related, and may be used more than once.

You are entitled to ask prospective employees or volunteers to get a Basic Disclosure as part of your pre-employment checking process.

Our comprehensive Disclosure service checks information:

  • Held on the Police National Computer (PNC), including convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings in England, Wales and those recorded from Scotland. There is also some Northern Ireland data held on the PNC
  • Held by local police forces relating to relevant non-conviction information
  • From the Independent Safeguarding Authority’s Vetting and Barring Scheme
  • Held by the Department for Education (DfE) under Section 142 of the Education Act 2002 (formerly known as List 99)

You can choose from three types of Disclosure depending on the position and your organisation:

  1. Standard Disclosure
  2. Enhanced Disclosure
  3. Volunteer Disclosure
