Barred list checks can only be carried out on those who are engaging in regulated activity. The definition of ‘regulated activity’ includes where individuals:
- Are responsible, on a regular basis, for teaching, training, instructing, caring for or supervising children; or
- Carry out paid, or unsupervised unpaid, work regularly where that work provides an opportunity for contact with children; or
- Engage in intimate or personal care or overnight activity, even if this happens only once.
This concise summary lists who needs a DBS check and recommendations for an enhanced check.
