Start my check

To work in insurance in the UK, you will need to undergo a standard DBS check.

DBS checks are carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service with the intention to keep the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, safe.

A standard DBS check for an employee working within insurance in the financial services, will involve a search to verify whether you have any unspent or spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings in existence on the Police National Computer.

Since 1974, DBS checks have been in operation for those working within financial services.

The 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act made DBS checks a statutory requirement for a wide range of roles across the UK, including those within financial services.

A standard DBS check for an employee working in insurance within the financial services, is a mid-level CRB check which can only be requested by your employer.

DBS checks of this nature are part of the vetting process for most roles within the legal and financial sectors, especially positions where work is carried out under Money Laundering Regulations and/ or performs an FCA approved controlled function.
