Criminal record seaching
Once a candidate's identity has been verified via Employment Identity Check, Standard Disclosures contain details of all convictions on record — both spent and unspent. If the applicant is applying for a role that involves working with children, this level of check will provide details of whether the applicant appears on government department lists of people that are considered unsuitable to work with children.
When to use Standard Criminal Record Disclosure checks
The Standard CRB check is available for positions covered by the Exceptions Order 1975 to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA), for example positions within the Security Industry and Financial Services.
Standard Disclosures show:
All convictions (current and spent)
Cautions, reprimands and warnings held on the Police National Computer in England and Wales
Most of the relevant convictions in Scotland and Northern Ireland may also be included.
