15/07/2009 – UK: Criminal Records Bureau reduces fees 

The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) has announced that it will reduce the fee for Standard Disclosures from October with total savings to customers of 1 million.

Following a pricing review, the government agency has agreed to reduce the fee charged for a Standard Disclosure from 31 to 26.

Home Office Minister David Hanson MP said:

“The CRB plays a vital role helping to protect the most vulnerable in our society by giving employers the extra tools they need to make informed recruitment decisions. The cost of a CRB check now represents even greater value for money given the protection and assurance that such checks provide.”

The recently published Business Plan for 2009/10 shows that during the past 12 months the CRB has

prevented a further 18,000 unsuitable people from gaining access to children and vulnerable adults as a direct result of a CRB check, bringing the total to around 98,000 in the past five years.

The following fee levels will apply from October 1 throughout the remainder of 2009/10:

- Standard CRB check  26 (reduced from 31)

- Enhanced CRB check  36

- POVAFirst check  6

Further information about the CRB

The CRB was established under Part V of the Police Act 1997 and commenced operation in 2002.

It provides access to criminal record information through its Disclosure service. It enables organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors to make safer recruitment decisions by identifying candidates who may be unsuitable for certain work, especially that involving children or vulnerable adults.
