To work as a pharmaceutical chemist, you will need to take a DBS check.

DBS checks are formal criminal record checks in operation for all those working in public-facing roles.

Pharmaceutical chemists hold an influential position with close contact with the public so like all other healthcare professionals, they are legally obliged to undergo a DBS check.

What type of DBS check will I need?

DBS checks are administered by the Disclosure and Barring Service on behalf of the Home Office.

A DBS check for a pharmaceutical chemist will be an enhanced DBS check. This type of CRB check is a robust check in line with the significance of your role.

DBS checks are necessary to ensure the public are properly safeguarded from those who may be unsuitable for public-facing roles.

Your DBS check for a pharmaceutical chemist will require a search for any unspent or spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings. The DBS will also check if there is any further non-conviction information in existence with relevant police forces or entries on the children’s and vulnerable adults barred lists.

DBS checks for pharmaceutical chemists became a legal requirement in 1974 under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. To read more about the act and what it means for you visit hub.unlock.org.uk/rehabilitationofoffendersact.

Across the healthcare sector, enhanced DBS checks are necessary for all professionals and will be requested by employers and professional bodies.. For more information visit the General Pharmaceutical Council.
