FOI 1455

Can DBS disclose information regarding the exchange of criminal records and information between the UK and EU states? Also disclose when a UK authority requests a criminal record check at the highest level – Enhanced DBS:

  • what is the level of information shared - Is this request limited solely to conviction?
  • can information be shared upon records such as specifically: arrests, cautions, misdemeanors punishable by fine
  • if the above would not be disclosed through an enhanced DBS, please (if known) disclose what indeed different systems would be utilized to disclose this information
  • does this level of information between the UK and certain EU countries differ? For example would Croatia not share criminal record requests upon information such as arrest but France does
  • please disclose level information regarding specifically disclosure of criminal records of a U.K citizen from Croatia to the UK, which does not include conviction by court, for example misdemeanor or fines
