Disclosure and Barring Service from June 2013

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) replaced the Criminal Records Bureau and the Independent Safeguarding Authority in December 2012. With the new organisation comes a new online update service and a number of other system changes. The UKHCA policy team outline here how the system changes will affect your current criminal record checking procedures and where to find more information. The guidance covers the filtering of some old and minor offences, the issue of one DBS certificate sent directly to the applicant, and the new online update service.
