Disclosure and Barring Service

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) are the Government regulatory body who assess whether or not people should be considered for inclusion on either the Children’s or Adult’s Barred Lists. Inclusion on the list can mean that working, or even volunteering, with children and/or adults is prohibited.

How does someone become included on the list?

  • If they are convicted or cautioned of certain offences (including some violent and drug offences).
  • If the DBS consider the person a risk or harm to a child or vulnerable adult.

With certain offences, automatic inclusion will apply. With others there may be a right to make representations as to why an individual should not be included on the barred list.

Removal from the Barred List

Even if not included on the list, by law, the Chief Officer of Police must disclose on an EDBL (Enhanced Disclosure with Barred List) Check any locally held information which they consider relevant to an application and they consider ought to be disclosed.

This means that if you were applying for a job where an EDBL were required, information about an allegation can be shared. This is the case even if the decision not to prosecute is made. If this were to happen, the Police would contact you. You would be given the opportunity to make representations as to why it may be unjust to share this information.

Testimonials

The unexpected experience of a H&S Executive prosecution was facing my company and this proved to extend over a period of several months because of the slow process. I instructed Poole Alcock to handle the matter on behalf of the company and I found Dan Brooks, the Partner who heads up Criminal Litigation, to be extremely supportive and responsive from initial enquiry and instruction through to the hearing and thereafter. The process did prove to be stressful but Poole Alcock walked us through each stage and ensured that it went as smoothly as possible. I was specifically grateful for Dan’s advice on the day of the trial. Their advice proved to be accurate and their recommendations were offered sympathetically and in a measured way.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of Poole Alcock to any company facing similar circumstances.
