DBS checked in Brighton, East Sussex

The DBS allows public, private and voluntary sector organisations to make safer recruitment decisions by identifying candidates who may be unsuitable for specific work.

DBS checks are particularly important for professionals working with children or vulnerable adults
and provide greater access to criminal record information through the UK’s Disclosure Services.

The DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, once known as the CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check, is becoming increasingly important when working in the private household sector.

The certificate will contain information of both spent and unspent convictions, cautions and reprimands on the Police National Computer, that are not subject to filtering.

If an individual or an organisation has concerns with respect to a staff member or contractor, such as a Locksmith, they may refer the matter back to the DBS.

The DBS will work with multiple agencies to assess whether the individual should be prevented from working in regulated activities such as a Locksmith with vulnerable or elderly people.
