Musicians working in the UK operate in a wide variety of contexts to entertain the public. With locations ranging from concert halls to theatres and schools, you will have lots of contact with the public.

As a result, musicians in the UK are required to take a basic DBS check to verify their suitability for this type of public-facing role.

Basic DBS checks are carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service and involves a search to see if you have any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

A basic DBS check for a musician is a statutory measure set out in the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. The act stipulates the need for DBS checks for a wide variety of frontline roles.

For those who have the most frequent and possibly unsupervised interactions with the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, the most comprehensive type of CRB check is required.

Therefore, if you are planning to work as a music tutor in schools or colleges or wish to work on music projects in any provision for children or vulnerable adults, you will be asked to take an enhanced DBS check.

An enhanced DBS check for a musician will require a search for any spent and unspent convictions, reprimands, cautions, warnings and non-conviction information held by relevant police forces.
