DBS Checks

DBS - Criminal Background Checks

In the UK, Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks are used to confirm whether a candidate has any records of convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings.  We work with our clients to deliver unique requirements and processes that are adapted to best suit the functionality of each of our client’s individual screening processes using our custom-built online system. 

Horus currently performs or advises on overseas criminal record checks for approximately 110 jurisdictions. This list is continually added to, as new guidance packages are written when there are changes to any jurisdiction or the is a specific client requirement.
