DBS Update Service

This service was launched by the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) on 17 June 2013. CBS checks used to be called CRB checks.

Individuals can subscribe to the service for £13 per year when they next have a criminal record check.

Once an individual has subscribed, any employer or prospective employer can carry out a free, online, instant check to see if any new information has come to light since the individual’s disclosure certificate was issued – a Status check.

Childcare Disqualification Declaration

In October 2014, the Department for Education (DfE) issued an update to its Statutory Guidance “Keeping Children Safe”.

This update requires schools which provide care for pupils under the age of 8, to ensure that staff and volunteers working in these settings are not disqualified from doing so under the Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2009.
