A Basic DBS check (also known as a Basic Disclosure Check or previously, a Basic CRB Check) is a background check into an individual’s history in order to reveal any unspent convictions. A conviction becomes ‘spent’ after a certain amount of time has elapsed. How long this is depends on the type of offence and the sentence given, however the minimum period of time for a conviction to become ‘spent’ is 3 months, and applies specifically to conditional cautions.

A Basic DBS Check is available to anyone for any reason. For example, if you are applying for a specific job role that doesn’t require a DBS check, your potential employer can still request this level of disclosure as part of their employment policy. A Basic DBS Check is also required in order to apply for an alcohol licence and in some cases, a visa.

Care Check offer a Basic Disclosures service for organisations that need to obtain basic background checks for their staff, or potential employees. Increased compliance has caused a rise in the number of employers requesting different levels of DBS checks, especially Basic DBS Disclosures, to ensure safety within the workplace and to protect their organisation from possible internal threats. It also makes for a smooth recruitment process.

Basic Disclosure Check FAQs

As a business owner, it is only natural that you would want to protect your business from any safeguarding issues or potential threats. Many employers shield themselves from burglary, however, they ignore internal threats from their own staff and this can be detrimental to a business, specifically if an employee has gained access to sensitive data. A Basic DBS Check will add this extra layer of protection, giving you peace of mind that your business is in safe hands.

  1. Peace of mind for the business owner
  2. Reduces the risk of internal fraud
  3. Stock protection
  4. Reduces employee theft
  5. Improves safety within the workplace
  6. Ensures recruitment process is efficient and productive

A Basic DBS Disclosure entails a search of the PNC for all the details of current convictions, but the certificate result will only reveal unspent convictions and conditional cautions. If a conviction becomes spent any time after a certificate has been issued, this will not be disclosed.

When you choose Care Check to undertake basic DBS checks for your employees, the application process is very straightforward; the majority of Basic applications are completed within 24-48 hours, however, on occasion some applications can take up to 14 days to process if there are internal queries.

  • An organisation would register here and a company account would be set up within 15 minutes. The HR users on the account would be sent login details as well as an organisation reference.
  • The applicant would complete the application form and produce ID documents to their employer.
  • The employer would then complete the ID verification, approve the application and submit it to us.
  • Care Check will oversee the application, countersign it and send it off to the DBS for processing.
  • The application then completes and the employer receives a completion notification; a hard copy certificate is later produced.
