All change for Basic Criminal Record Checks

james@blinkagency.co.uk Screening Industry News

From the 1st January 2018, Disclosure Scotland (DS) will no longer be the provider of ‘Basic’ criminal record checks for England and Wales.

The Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) is offering their own Basic criminal record check service, whilst DS will only offer this for those living or working in Scotland.

A Basic criminal record check can be obtained for anyone for any purpose. It is fast becoming a default check for employers seeking staff to work in public facing roles, cash handling or for engineers attending client sites or customer homes.

Agenda offers a criminal record checking service (including Enhanced for some roles), as part of a comprehensive pre-employment screening package, that is tailored to meet the needs of individual clients and sectors. Contact us today on 08456 44 55 46, or hello@agenda-screening.co.uk to find out more.
