Standard DBS Check

With eSafeguarding, the process of carrying out Standard DBS Checks online could not be easier, promising safety, security and speed. 

What Is a DBS Check?

A DBS check is an official record which states a person’s criminal convictions, cautions, reprimands, and warnings. These are important because they let employers find out whether a candidate is suitable to work in their organisation. DBS checks are required for a number of sectors, but most commonly they are needed when a potential employee will be working with vulnerable groups like children or the elderly. 

What Is a Standard DBS Check?

The Standard DBS Check is a higher level of DBS check, and the certificate will contain details of both spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands, and warnings that are held on the Police National Computer, which are not subject to filtering.


Standard DBS Checks can only be undertaken if the specific role, or the specific activities conducted within the role are included in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975, an example of roles requiring a Standard Level Check are certain financial services positions.
