Supreme Court ruling on criminal record checks / Filtering process

Today the Supreme Court ruled on a case that’s been going through the courts for some time. An earlier Court of Appeal case is what led to the ‘filtering process’ being introduced by the Disclosure & Barring Service.

The reason for this post is to just make it clear that, as a result of today’s judgement, we don’t expect any changes to be made to the filtering process. It was suspected by some that the reason the Government were appealing was so that they could remove the filtering process all together. The fact that they lost their appeal means that the filtering process stays.
