What is a Basic Disclosure?

A Basic DBS Check provides you with all non-spent convictions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (ROA). It enables applicants to access their completed basic disclosure certificates online and have the ability to raise queries and track the progress of their check.

Basic disclosure checks are run by the Disclosure and Barring Service, which handles all basic exposure in England and Wales. However, if you require a basic disclosure for a job role based in Scotland, you should apply to Disclosure Scotland.

When Do You Need a Basic Disclosure?

Basic disclosures are available to all employers (and individuals) and cover all roles and responsibilities. They are not job specific and are available to anyone for any purpose. All checks must be done under a fair process and with individual consent.

They help you to understand an individual’s risk to your business from the outset and ensure you don’t put employees in an unsuitable environment which could cause damage to your organisation.

However, if the role of an individual is more sensitive and they could be working with vulnerable groups (adults or children) you will need to consider an enhanced or standard disclosure.

If you aren’t sure which you require we can advise you on this, CBS can help. CBS is all about solving your problems in a way that makes sense – get in touch and one of our expert team would be happy to help.


As experts in our field, CBS provides you with a quick, efficient service tailored to your needs.
