Please note that all Croner-i policies are templates and should be amended to fit your requirements.

This policy reflects the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) guidance (2019) on how care services should make referrals to its barred list(s) under the circumstances and conditions that they are legally required to do so. The DBS is common to England and Wales.

The DBS barred list(s) apply to anyone employed in the service who is employed in “regulated activity”, involving the personal care of service users and associated care tasks as summarised below.

The policy includes any employment agency or bank staff and any volunteers who work in the service from time to time and who engage in regulated activity as defined by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. It does not apply to individuals invited in by service users and relatives as visitors, or under some private arrangement, where they have no contract of employment with the service as such.
