Basic Criminal Check (DBS)

Basic criminal checks, also referred to as basic DBS checks, are an essential procedure for numerous businesses. It is crucial to have a reliable and proficient company assisting you with the entire process of DBS checks.

Our team of highly experienced professionals is available to provide expert guidance for your basic DBS check requirements today.

What is a Basic DBS Check

A basic Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is used to check for a criminal record of any unspent convictions or conditional cautions recorded against a candidate in the Police National Computer.

What is the criteria for a Basic DBS check?

There is no specific criteria or eligibility for a basic DBS check, this means anyone can request one for signing a job contract or before the recruitment process.

However, as an employer, you bear the legal responsibility of ensuring the job role meets the eligibility criteria for a standard or enhanced DBS check. Remember to verify this before countersigning each DBS application form. Ensure compliance and make informed decisions.
