Criminal Records Bureau (CRB)

With effect from 1st December 2012, the Criminal Records Bureau and the Independent Safeguarding Authority merged to form a new body – the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Prior to that date, the Criminal Records Bureau conducted police checks to enable an assessment to be made on the suitability of a person to care for or work with children/Vulnerable Adults. These checks are now carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
