Enhanced DBS

An Enhanced DBS check will show all cautions and warnings, as well as spent and unspent convictions. This excludes youth cautions, youth reprimands or youth warnings. It may also list relevant information supplied by local police. It is only available to people in certain roles and must be requested by their employer.

Standard DBS

A Standard DBS check is only available to individuals in certain roles and must be requested by their employer. It shows both spent and unspent convictions listed on an individual’s criminal record.

Basic DBS

The Basic DBS check is available to anyone in England or Wales. The check will only show convictions that are unspent. The check is available online either to individuals or to employers.

Other Criminal Records Checks we perform


Our Criminality Department has a dedicated team of specialists conducting criminal records checks overseas. The cost of these is dependent on which country the check has to be carried out in and the timescale required to receive the result.

Access NI

An individual cannot apply for a AccessNI check. An application for a standard check must be counter-signed by an AccessNI-registered organisation. If the organisation that requested the check provided you with a PIN, then you can apply online.
