Hi ,
Id like to hear from UK members who have applied for a CRB check whilst in the UK before heading for jobs in Korea.

Could you tell me ...
How /where you applied for one?
Is a 'basic' CRB acceptable ?

Cheers !

Hello Mac

Welcome to the forum.

I have an Enhanced Disclosure Certificate, which was applied for by the university, prior to my employment.

The Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) only applies to England and Wales and they respond to requests from registered employers in the UK but not from individuals.

Its sister body in Scotland is called Disclosure Scotland and the same rules apply except that an individual can apply for the lowest level check, the Basic Disclosure (termed as a “criminal conviction certificate” ). You can apply, from anywhere in the UK, ON LINE, for the Basic Disclosure from Disclosure Scotland, as they have access to the same records as the CRB and you don't have to be Scottish to apply. The basic certificate could take up to 14 days. See Links

The only other document available to you is Subject Access, which you would apply for from your local police headquarters. This would give details of any information the police had about you. There's also the Police Certificate, which is used for Visa and immigration purposes but it will be comprehensive and nobody would question that but is more costly. See link:

http://www.met.police.uk/information/faq.htm

Contact the Korean Embassy in London and ask them what they require. The basic certificate will probably have BASIC DISCLOSURE written on it and therefore, Subject Access might be your best bet for appearances.
QUOTE from Metropolitan Police:
...foreign embassies will generally accept a police reply under the Subject Access Provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 as a suitable equivalent.
