This section tells you about changes to the sexual offences laws and how these affect previous convictions for offences which have now been decriminalised. It gives advice on what can and cannot be disclosed in a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
CRB checks enable an employer (or similar) to find out whether a potential employee or volunteer has a current criminal conviction or in some cases previous criminal convictions that might be relevant to the job/position they are applying for.
Since 2003, a number of activities which were previously illegal are now legal.
Until October 2009 it was possible to have the above convictions ‘stepped down’ from your records so they were no longer disclosed by the police to your employer.
