If you want to know more about this merger or are joining us from CRBS we’ve created this short blog to answer any questions you may have.

 

How does this work?

  • The merger exercise will start from 1st September – any client registered with CRBS will become a client of uCheck
  • The CRBS and CRB-checkonline websites will be accessible until 1st October, after which their content will be merged into the uCheck site

 

I’m a current client of CRBS. What’s going to change?

There’s no need to worry if you’re currently using CRBS – the merger with uCheck means that you will be using the exact same online platform as you were before, just at a cheaper cost.
