How do I Apply for a Basic Disclosure Certificate ?

There are three types of disclosure certificates:
  • Basic
  • Standard
  • Enhanced
When working as a Supporting Artiste you are self-employed so need to apply for the basic disclosure certificate rather than the more detailed standard or enhanced disclosure certificate.

You have 3 options for applying for a basic disclosure certificate:

1) Apply via https://www.gov.uk : https://www.gov.uk/request-copy-criminal-record

2) Apply via Disclosure Scotland : https://www.mygov.scot/basic-disclosure/

3) Apply via AccessNI : https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/campaigns/accessni-criminal-record-checks

It doesn't matter which one you do. All three ways to apply are for the same basic disclosure certificate.

If you already have the more detailed standard or enhanced disclosure certificate via another employer from other work you do, please read this
