Standard DBS Check
We’re able to offer our fastest turnaround on Standard DBS online checks.
What is a Standard DBS Check?
A Standard DBS check will reveal the following criminal history:
- Spent convictions
- Unspent convictions
Unlike the enhanced DBS check, the standard DBS check does not disclose any other police information, nor does it check the individual against the ISA Children’s or Adults’ barred lists. This means we can fast track the completion of the standard DBS online application much faster than an enhanced DBS check. However, the standard DBS check should not be used as a quicker alternative to an enhanced DBS check as individuals who work with children or vulnerable adults must apply for an enhanced DBS check, as the standard level is not applicable. Unsure what an enhanced DBS check is and what it involves? Get in touch here to find out.
Who Needs a Standard DBS Check?
The standard DBS check is only suitable for certain occupations specified in the Exceptions Order to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. To apply for a DBS check online, individuals must have their proof of ID and proof of address documents verified by their current or prospective employer.
