Disclosure Calculator

What is it? | User guide | FAQs | Terms of use | Multiple-use

This Calculator is managed by Unlock, a charity for people with convictions. It is part of a group of websites that Unlock manages.

What the calculator does
This calculator establishes when criminal convictions become "spent" under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, as it applies in England & Wales. It has been updated to reflect the March 2014 reforms. We are keen for feedback on how the tool is working. E-mail any thoughts/advice to advice@unlock.org.uk. For more information on the calculator, click here.

Applying for a standard or enhanced DBS check?
These types of checks will disclose spent cautions and convictions, so the answers that this calculator provides are irrelevant. If you're applying for a standard or enhanced check, you need to work out whether your caution or conviction will be filtered. We have a simple guide and a flow-chart available here that should help.

Use the calculator for personal use

Please note this calculator is for personal use only and is limited to a single use. If you are an organisation or professional wishing to use the Disclosure Calculator as part of your work, you should set up an account for multiple use.

I am using this:

for myself (I have a criminal record)
for a family member / friend who has a criminal record
for someone I'm helping as part of my job
