UK plumbers are required to take a basic DBS check as part of statutory UK vetting processes for all frontline workers.
Your basic DBS check for a plumber will require a criminal record search by the Disclosure and Barring service on behalf of the Home Office.
DBS checks are necessary for all frontline worker to safeguard the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, from those who are unsuitable for public-facing roles.
As part of the recruitment process, you will need to complete a DBS application form for the search to commence. Your basic DBS check can also be requested by you, without your employer.
Once the DBS check is finished, the Disclosure and Barring Service will send you two DBS certificates displaying the results of the search.
One DBS certificate will be sent by post and the other will be available online. You will need to show the DBS certificate to your employer to begin your new role.
A basic DBS check for a plumber will search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.
Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, plumbers and all other frontline workers are subject to background checks of this nature.
