Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Ok.
What level of checking are you facing?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't need it for any thing. just was curious whether a small thing like that is take off my records after all this time.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Sorry for the delay.
It will always be on your PNC until your 100th birthday.
It will only be revealed though on your enhanced check DBS now though as it would long since have been spent and so removed from basic checking and stepped down so dropped off standard.
It will only be revealed on your enhanced check if deemed relevant although it is fair to say that the police forces do tend to be risk adverse on the whole when it comes to removing things from DBS.
Can I clarify anything for you?

Hi thank you for your reply.
Not sure if I understood properly.
For example my friends bought a nursery and if she asks me to help with admin work temporary, she would obviously need to do DBS check and would that show on that?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
If you are enhanced checked it would.
If you are working with children then you will be enhanced checked.
The only way it would not is if the police take the view it is not relevant.
