What is a Standard DBS Check?
A standard DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check is an in-depth background check used by employers on behalf of applicants to verify if a candidate is suitable to hire for work in a specific industry. It will show details of all cautions, warnings, reprimands, as well as all spent and unspent convictions held on an individual’s criminal record.
Do I qualify for a Standard Criminal Record check?
You may only be able to apply for a Standard Criminal Record check if you work in certain industries such as;
- Health and Social Care
- Financial Services - where this relates to the Senior Management Certificate Regime (SMCR)
- Accountancy - upon entrance to the profession
- Dental Practices

Can I Apply for a Standard Criminal Record Check?
This level of DBS (CRB) check is only available to organisations to access on behalf of their employees; an individual cannot apply for a check on themselves. Once the application has been processed, the certificate will be sent directly to the applicant. Prior to starting their job they will be required to show this to their new employer.
I'm self-employed, can I apply for a Standard DBS Check?
in most cases, as a self-employed person or the most senior person within your organisation, you would not be able to apply for a Standard DBS Check. This level is only available for an organisation to make suitability decisions on potential or existing employees. Individuals cannot make this decision on themselves for the purpose of a DBS Check.
