Standard and Enhanced CRB Checks
Standard CRB Checks are recommended for the financial industry and for accountants. Usually, there is no need to apply for Enhanced CRB Checks, as the Enhanced checks are aimed for professions who provide a specific service to either children or vulnerable adults. The Enhanced CRB Checks would only be available if the work involves direct contact with either children or vulnerable adults. Eligibility also depends on the frequency of which the work is carried out, the nature of the work and the location where the work is done.
Standard and Enhanced CRB Checks show all Cautions, Warnings, Reprimands and Convictions from the individual’s living time in the UK only. The Enhanced CRB Check also searches to check the individuals name on the ‘Barred Lists’ for working with both Children and Vulnerable Adults. The Enhanced CRB Check then gives the Police access to include any other relevant information they think is suitable to include on a CRB Check.

Basic Disclosure Scotland Criminal Record Check
Although we recommend the Standard CRB Check, if the profession does not fit the qualifying criteria for a Standard Check, we would then recommend organisations to carry out Basic Disclosure checks on their staff.
The Basic Disclosure (more commonly known as a Criminal Convictions Certificate) is a certificate which searches for all unspent Criminal Convictions that an individual may have from their whole living time in the UK.
