There are three different types of criminal disclosure checks. Depending on the role of an individual or the environment in which they work, will determine the level of criminal check available. Safeguarding children and vulnerable groups is top priority for individuals, companies and organisations alike. Therefore, most organisations will require the Enhanced level CRB Disclosure. Individuals are unable to obtain CRB Checks on themselves, however, a basic criminal disclosure is available to anyone for any purpose and can be ordered via our website. Additionally, you can register for standard and enhanced CRB checks online and provide us with all relevant information. We will then contact you to complete the registration process.
