When you begin your career as an actuary you will need to complete a standard DBS check. A standard DBS check for an actuary involves a search of any unspent or spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings in existence on the Police National Computer.

Standard DBS checks for actuaries are necessary due to the advisory role an actuary delivers. As you enter the profession, your standard DBS check will be used to asses your suitability for work as an actuary.

Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, there are many other positions across the financial and legal sectors that also require a CRB check, such as accountants and solicitors.

To become an actuary you will need to join the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries as a student member. Members of the IFOA are closely regulated so you will need to complete a standard DBS for an actuary as part of the vetting process. You can apply here.

In later years, you may need to undergo background checks again to continue your membership. Find out more about DBS checks
