DBS Check FAQs

What is a basic DBS check?

A basic DBS check is the first level of criminal record check in the UK, and is available for any position or purpose. This type shows the details of convictions and conditional cautions that are considered to be unspent under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. Put simply, these can be termed as anything serious and/or recent.  

The acronym DBS is short for The Disclosure and Barring Service, which helps employees make safer recruitment decisions, and is a government body that is sponsored by the Home Office. A basic DBS check (formerly known as a CRB check) is also sometimes referred to as a basic criminal record check, or a basic disclosure.

What is a standard DBS check?

A standard DBS check (previously known as a Standard CRB check) shows any spent or unspent convictions a candidate may have, as well as cautions, warnings or reprimands held on the Police National Computer.

What is the difference between a basic and standard DBS check?

The primary difference between a basic DBS check and a standard DBS check is that in order to obtain a standard check certain legal eligibility criteria must be met. Whereas, a basic DBS check is available to anyone in the UK over the age of 16 for any purpose.

What is an enhanced DBS check in the UK?

An Enhanced DBS check is the most detailed criminal record check in the UK. This shows any spent or unspent convictions, cautions, warnings or reprimands that an applicant may have, and any relevant details on the application's local police force. This type of check may also include a check of the children’s and/or adults’ barred list, if the applicant is eligible.

How long does a basic DBS last?

A basic DBS check doesn’t have an official expiry date. However, the information provided is only valid and accurate at the time the check was carried out. Some companies may request a new DBS check upon joining or at certain intervals at their discretion - this may form part of a rescreening programme.

Background Check FAQ's

What background check do I need?
This depends on the industry and type of role you are recruiting for. To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.
Why should employers check the background of potential employees?
Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected. When you employ a new staff member you need to be certain that they have the best interests of your business at heart. Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.
How long do background checks take?
Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.
Can you do a background check online?
All Veremark checks are carried out online and digitally. This eliminates the need to collect, store and manage paper documents and information making the process faster, more efficient and ensures complete safety of candidate data and documents.
What are the benefits of a background check?
In a competitive marketplace, making the right hiring decisions is key to the success of your company. Employment background checks enables you to understand more about your candidates before making crucial decisions which can have either beneficial or catastrophic effects on your business.
What does a background check show?
Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.
