You may be shocked to discover, physicists in the UK are required to take a statutory criminal check called a DBS, to verify their suitability for the role.

There are four types of DBS checks in operation in the UK. A DBS check for a physicist is called a basic DBS check and will form part of your application process.

DBS checks are a formal vetting procedure for public-facing roles, carried out by the Disclosure and Barring service. If you are in Scotland, the search will be managed by Disclosure Scotland.

The Disclosure and Barring Service work under terms set out in 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and have a mandate to keep the public safe from those who are unsuitable for public-facing roles.

What is a basic DBS check?

A basic DBS check for a physicist will only involve a search to verify whether you have any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions. This type of CRB check will not include any spent convictions.

However, if you do become involved in any projects related to security, you will be required to undergo a higher level DBS check called an enhanced DBS check.

An enhanced DBS check for a physicist will involve a search to verify whether you have 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.

Basic DBS checks can be requested by an employer or an individual. We provide full support for the completion of basic DBS checks. You can even complete your DBS check online with us.
