Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check:

An employer or an individual person may apply for a DBS check. Further information is available on the UK government website at: https://www.gov.uk/find-out-dbs-check. This includes how you can find out what level of DBS you may need and has a link to apply for a basic check for yourself. To get a check see here https://www.gov.uk/request-copy-criminal-record

You can use other services, such as https://crbdirect.org.uk/  which is an independent service not affiliated to the Government, or if you are an employer, you may be able to register with a company such as: https://www.sonographersmedical.com/dbs-crb-checks/

For both standard and enhanced checks from 28th November 2020 a change was made such that childhood cautions are no longer disclosed, and a rule that meant someone with more than one conviction had all their convictions disclosed, regardless of offence or length of time, has been abolished.
