How long does a Basic DBS check last?

A DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service) does not have an official expiry date. Any information which is included on the check will be accurate at the time the check was carried out. Deciding to carry out an additional check is up to the person requesting the check. Some companies request a new DBS check every 12 months, other industries can require these checks every few months.
