The Disclosure service is the core business of the DBS. There are two different types of Disclosure: Standard and Enhanced.
Standard Disclosure provides details of a person’s criminal record including all convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings held on the Police National Computer (PNC). If the position involves working with children, Disclosures will also contain details from lists held by the Department of Health (DoH) and the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), POCAL and List 99, of those considered unsuitable for this type of work.
Enhanced Disclosure includes all of the information contained in a Standard Disclosure but will also contain information held by local police forces. It indicates whether a person is banned from working or volunteering with children or vulnerable adults. The Human Resources Department (HR) can advise candidates on the level of Disclosure (if required) and how this fits into the recruitment and selection process.
