Filtering legislation

"What is the new filtering legislation about?

Previously, all convictions, cautions, final warnings and reprimands on the Police National Computer were disclosed on Standard and Enhanced DBS (formerly ‘CRB’) certificates until a person reached 100 years of age.

On the 29th May 2013, an amendment to The Police Act 1997 was implemented that allows certain minor offences to be removed or ‘filtered’ from the certificates. Offences that are eligible to be filtered no longer need to be disclosed for jobs that are eligible for Standard or Enhanced DBS checks.

Please note that the legislation applies to England and Wales only.",1648,NAP.html
