Which DBS check do I need? – Scrap Metal Dealer

You will need to take a basic DBS check to work as a scrap metal dealer.

A basic DBS check is the lowest of four different types of statutory criminal record checks for frontline workers.

All those who work in frontline roles in the UK are required to undertake one of four types of DBS check. The four types of DBS checks are:

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

Each CRB check requires a different depth of criminal record search. DBS checks exist to keep the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, safe.

As a scaffolder your interaction with the public will be limited so you will need a basic DBS check for a scaffolder.

A basic DBS check for a scrap metal dealer will require a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.
