With effect from 28 November 2020, standard and enhanced criminal records checks from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly the Criminal Records Bureau) have been changed under The Police Act 1997 (Criminal Records Certificates: Relevant Matters) (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2020.
What this means is that:-
This comes as a result of a ruling by the Supreme Court last year that having to disclose multiple convictions, as well as youth reprimands and youth warnings, was disproportionate with Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (the right to respect for private and family life).
The DBS has issued guidance on this change, which you can access here.
