    A Standard DBS/CRB check (rare) is primarily for positions of high responsibility (for example accountancy & security). These certificates reveal details of any convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings, that do not qualify for filtering. This type of check may only be applied for, if the applicant’s job is specified in the Police Act 1997, as amended by the Protection of Freedom Act 2012 i.e. it is the same as Enhanced but does not involve the local police to give warnings or recommendation and therefore is not sufficient for those working where there are children or vulnerable adults.

    An Enhanced DBS/CRB check provides an applicant’s full criminal record as well as information held by the local police that is relevant to the post. It may also provide a check of the Childrens &/or Vulnerable Adults banned lists.

    The result of a check is issued on a certificate called a disclosure which is issued to the applicant only and the organisation must view this original disclosure to make the decision to place the applicant or not.
