Why request a Basic DBS Check?

Basic DBS checks give you assurance about the people you are placing into a role. Basic DBS checks are particularly useful where employers have some roles that are not eligible for a Standard (e.g. Financial Services positions) or Enhanced (e.g. working with children) check, but wish to set a policy that all staff and contractors should be pre-employment checked at some level. Requesting a basic DBS check also ensures your organisation adheres to the government standard Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS).
