What is a CRB Check?

A CRB (Criminal Record Bureau) check is a criminal record check usually carried out by employers or organisations on potential and current staff to make informed recruitment decisions, and in some cases to see whether the individual can work with vulnerable adults and children.

They can also be carried out on the likes of volunteers, foster carers and adoption applicants – anywhere where a criminal history could be important to know about.

The Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) merged with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) in 2012 to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). You can read more about the difference here. The Difference Between CRB and DBS.

What CRB Checks Can An Employer Apply For?

Basic CRB Check

A basic CRB check contains a list of unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings recorded on Police central records.

Standard CRB Check

A standard CRB check contains a list of spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings recorded on Police central records.

Enhanced CRB Check

Like the previous two, an enhanced CRB check contains a list of spent and unspent convictions. In addition, any information held by Local Police Forces that is considered relevant will be included. For more information about the Local Police information included in an Enhanced check, click here to read our blog. When applying for an Enhanced check, it is also possible to apply for a Children’s Barred List check and an Adult’s Barred List check.

Children’s Barred List Check

This is a list containing individuals who are barred from working with children. It is illegal to work with children, or employ someone to, when they are on the Children’s Barred List. It can only be requested if the prospective candidate will be working in regulated activity or frequently unsupervised with children in their role.

Adult’s Barred List Check

The Adult’s Barred List check contains a list of individuals who are not allowed to work with vulnerable adults. It is illegal to work with vulnerable adults, or employ someone to, if they are on this list. When applying for an Adult’s Barred List check, it is possible to apply for an Adult First check. Doing so allows the applicant to work with vulnerable adults, usually within 48 hours, under supervision, until the full check is completed.
