Overseas Criminal Record check


DBS checks do not include information from overseas police forces, which means that people who have recently moved to the UK may be required to also obtain an Overseas Criminal Records (OCR) check.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to get their Overseas Criminal Record (OCR) checks from the relevant country/ies.

Note: You can still apply for a DBS whilst acquiring your OCR but it will not be uploaded to your LTA account until we have your overseas certificate/s.
