Herts County Council logoSelf-Declaration

Please ensure that you obtain a “Self Declaration” when you are carrying out the DBS check. Regulated Activity roles are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and therefore should declare all convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings.

The completed form should be stored in the applicant’s personal file until the DBS certificate has been presented for inspection. If the DBS certificate contains information that requires a risk assessment please refer to the self-declaration. This can be sent with the risk assessment and copy of certificate to the Safe Staffing team for review.
