Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), previously referred to as criminal record checks, plays a significant role in safeguarding your business and your stakeholders. Employers are responsible for carrying out checks when recruiting for positions that are regulated, such as working with the vulnerable, children or in the healthcare industry.
There are three levels of checks, basic, standard and enhanced. We specialise in facilitating employers in carrying out the online basic disclosure, by checking and processing the online application and providing support if needed at each step of the process.
It is important to remember that a DBS check should only be carried out on successful job applicants, with the employer able to withdraw the job offer if the results show anything that would make the applicant unsuitable for the position.
How Our DBS Checks Work
Once the applicant has submitted their application for a basic DBS check, a member of our team will thoroughly check the application and the information provided. If there is further information required our system will automatically contact the applicant and request the supporting documentation needed.
We shall submit the application to the appropriate governing body, in a timely manner and will send an email to the applicant confirming the application reference number.
Applicants must be resident in England and Wales to use this online service.
