1. Complete your Personal Details
To do this you just need to click on the orange Start My Check button. You will be guided through each straightforward stage. You will also have use of our comprehensive Support facility if you need any help.
2. ID Information
You will be sent a separate link which will enable you to record which identity documents have been independently verified. You can view the list of acceptable documents here on the DBS website.
3. Application Processing
We will make some final checks on your data and then your application will be sent to the DBS for processing. Please note that if the DBS have a query on your application they will contact you directly.
We will let you know as soon as your application has completed processing with the DBS*. You will receive your certificate in the post & you can also log in to our uCheck Platform to view the summary result online.
*We will always notify you by email. Where you have provided a mobile telephone number we will also send you a text.
Unfortunately, you can’t request Standard or Enhanced CRB Checks directly as an individual. If you have been told you specifically require a Standard or Enhanced Check, please contact your employer.
If you require a Standard or Enhanced CRB Check, this is the information that your employers will see. Standard CRB Checks will show any unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings, as well as any spent convictions or cautions that were not removed by filtering.
Enhanced CRB Checks will show the same information as a Standard CRB Check, but will also include any intelligence provided by the police, which they feel may be relevant when making recruitment decisions.
An Enhanced CRB Check with Barred List Check, provides the same information as an Enhanced only level Check, but also includes any information on the Adults’ and/or Children’s Barred lists.
If you live overseas, choosing this option will ensure that your certificate is sent to you ‘tracked and signed for’.
Those living outside of the UK may benefit from using this service as the DBS cannot guarantee that your certificate will reach you.
This is an additional charge of £15 inc VAT.
