What is a Standard DBS check?

Standard DBS checks or disclosures are a type of criminal record check issued by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). It contains details of all spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings from the Police National Computer (PNC). 

How do I request a standard DBS check?

Standard DBS checks must be requested through an organisation registered with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) known as umbrella bodies.
