DBS updates identity checking guidelines

Source: Home Office | | 04/02/2018

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) has introduced new identity checking guidelines for standard and enhanced disclosure checks. The new guidelines have been running in parallel with the previous guidelines since October 2017. However, the previous guidelines have now ceased to apply, and employers must use the new version.

The change is being introduced so that the DBS’s identity checking process is aligned with current right to work checks. These state that employers must prevent illegal working in the UK by carrying out document checks on workers before employing them to make sure they have the right to work in the UK.
