UK publishers can expect to be asked to take a basic DBS check when applying for a role.

A basic DBS check for a publisher will involve a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

Publishers engage in some contact with the public in role so under the terms of the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, publishers have a duty to take a basic DBS check.

This type of DBS check does not require you to disclose any spent convictions and your employer has no legal right to ask about anything more than any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

A basic DBS check for a publisher is a first -tier CRB check. There are lots of other frontline roles in the UK required to take the same degree of vetting under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.
