Online CRB checking
Aaron's Department's CRB checking system will allow you to get your CRB checks done faster.
Available to all Employers, Charities or organisations who have staff or personnel that need
CRB checks before they begin their work or duties. Registration for an online CRB checking account
is easy and takes less than 15 minutes to complete. Once you are up and running with your account
you can quickly and easily begin adding your staff or personnel to the system, allowing them
to fill out their applications online from either work or the comfort of their home.
Inbuilt Checking system
Our system contains built in error checking, this alerts you to any inputting errors, missing information or conflicting
data and allows you or the applicant to correct it before submission. Once we receive your submission
it is forwarded to one of our specialist countersignatories who reviews and countersigns it,
before sending it to the CRB via our direct connection that same day. The whole aim of the system,
is to get each application to the CRB quickly but to also ensure that it is correct and error
free. Reducing the likelihood of the application being delayed or even rejected due to missing
or incorrect information.
What is free?
We don't charge you to register your company on our system, and we provide email and telephone support for free. We don't
tie you into a long term contract forcing you to use us. Our aim is to give you great service
with a free smile :-). Volunteer applications are also free, you only pay us a low admin fee.
What costs money?
For each application you submit, you pay a fee to the DBS service and a small admin fee to us. The Government's fee is fixed
and also free of VAT. Our admin fee is low but it is vatable. We also give you free admin credits
if you pay in advance. You can find a breakdown of our prices here

Don't like to be in the dark!
Our system will automatically notify you, at each stage of an applicant’s CRB check or you
can also login and view what stage an application is at. Keeping you informed of what is
happening each step of the way, no more guessing!
Can I still apply using a paper form?
Yes, for the rare occasions that a paper form is necessary then we will accept paper CRB applications. Please contact our
support team for the blank forms.
Is it safe
All our communication is sent encrypted. We only allow connections to our web service via https.
HTTPS explained: HTTPS puts the information sent over the internet into little locked encrypted
boxes. Only the intended recipients of these locked boxes are able to decipher the contents.
Even if somebody manages to intercept these locked boxes from the network, they would not
be able to unencrypt the messages.
Criminal Record Bureau renamed
The Criminal Record Bureau UK (CRB) has merged with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) under the Protection of
Freedoms Act 2012. The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is a non-departmental public
body of the Home Office of the United Kingdom. Aaron's Department is a DBS Umbrella body
providing an Online Disclosure service to organisations in the public, private and voluntary
sectors. Obtaining a Standard Criminal Record check or where required by law enhanced CRB
checks help identify candidates who may be unsuitable for certain work, especially work that
involves children or vulnerable adults.
