Basic Disclosure

A Basic Disclosure can be rendered ineffective if a candidate has supplied false or inaccurate details. For that reason, you could carry out an Experian Identity Check before undertaking any Criminal Record Checks.

Why should you conduct a Basic Disclosure on your employees?

A Basic Disclosure is available for any role and is not restricted by industry sector. Whilst criminal record checks are mandatory for some positions, employee fraud runs a very real risk of damaging the integrity and reputation of any business. Therefore, we believe that, in most cases, a Basic Disclosure should be viewed as an integral part of your pre-employment checking process.

What does a Basic Disclosure tell you?

Under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, most convictions are considered to be ‘spent’ after a certain period of time, and if no further offence has taken place. A Basic Disclosure will contain details of any unspent conditions a candidate might have, allowing employers to make a decision as to whether or not the candidate poses any potential risks.

Turnaround time

The Basic Disclosure is sourced from Disclosure Scotland and has a typical UK turnaround time of 14 to 21 days. We will return a completed Basic Disclosure to you once we have finished our final quality assurance checks, but you can view all references and data checks online as soon as they are received.
