BASIC CRIMINAL DISCLOSURES
Basic criminal disclosures are not job specific and are available to anyone, for any purpose. At CBS we offer a streamlined online process approved and tested by the Home Office, which provides us with direct access to the vetting teams accessing the Police National Computer. That means fast and accurate criminal checks for you.
WHAT IS A BASIC DISCLOSURE?
A Basic Disclosure provides you with all non-spent convictions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (ROA). From January 2017 this service will be provided by the DBS.
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. They help you to understand an individual’s risk to your business from the outset and ensures 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 – one of our expert team would be happy to help.
WHO CAN HAVE A BASIC DISCLOSURE?
Anyone can have a Basic Disclosure. There is no eligibility criteria that must be met, however all checks must be done under a fair process and with individual consent.
The cost of a basic disclosure with CBS is £40.60 (inc. VAT) per application. We will of course consider a reduction in costs for organisations wishing to submit applications in larger volumes.
