In 2002 legislative approval was passed which requires all employees and potential employees that work with groups such as the elderly, children under 18 years of age, vulnerable adults, and also within the financial and legal sectors, to undergo an official CRB check (Criminal Records Bureau). A CRB check will disclose to an employer that persons past history and any criminal background and provides a guideline as to their suitably to work within such an environment so helping to make safe recruitment decisions. A CRB check also acts as protection for any individuals within the care of that business or in the case of legal and financial sectors, protects the handling of confidential information and documentation.
As of the 1 December 2012 the Criminal Records Bureau and Independent Safeguarding Authority merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) which will combine the criminal records checking and barring functions meaning that from this date, the CRB check will be referred to as DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service).
