DBS checks are carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service. The Disclosure and Barring Service are a public body sponsored by the Home Office.

The DBS has a remit to safeguard the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults.

There are four types of DBS checks in operation for UK recruits:

  • Basic DBS
  • Standard DBS
  • Enhanced DBS
  • Enhanced DBS with barring lists

A DBS check for a postman/ postwoman is a basic DBS check which will involve a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

DBS checks are part of the vetting process for a wide variety of frontline roles in the UK. The 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act sets out the need for these checks and the type of check each position requires.
