Eligibility for a DBS Check
If you are an employer, charity, or organisation located in England or Wales that’s in need of a DBS check for applicants, you can apply for our online service and get fast results.
Individuals can’t request Standard and Enhanced disclosures on themselves. You can only request a Standard DBS check or Enhanced DBS check if you're an employer, charity, organisation or a licensing body, and the position you are offering involves doing a regulated activity or is included in the Exception Order 1975 of the Rehabilitation of Offenders act 1974. We offer you help and a DBS check guidance for employers.

Inbuilt Tracking System
Our system has an inbuilt DBS tracking tool, which allows you to check the progress on every single DBS application you have submitted, hassle-free.
Alongside this, you will receive an email notification each time there is a change in the status of an individual DBS check application. You Might Not Need the Tracking System at All!
Thanks to our fast service, we have DBS Certificates results returned in less than 2 hours on a regular basis, so the use of our tracking service might not even be needed. But it’s still there, just in case.
Most of the DBS Certificates for Our Checks Get Dispatched within a Week!
Still, some of them can take longer. If there is a problem, it’s usually with delays with an individual police force. That’s why we have an inbuilt tracking system – to let you know of these delays and keep you informed about what’s happening.

The CRB is now the DBS
The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). CRB checks are now called DBS checks. A DBS check is a criminal record check carried out by employers or organisations on prospective applicants, current staff members, visitors, volunteers, prospective foster carers, adoption applicants etc. to check their eligibility to work with or be in contact with children or vulnerable adults.
Our online DBS application service removes the printing and posting of standard paper forms which is more environmentally friendly and also significantly speeds up the process, getting applicants into work quicker.
All applications and payments are sent securely via encryption for privacy of information and security.

"Since I started working with the Aarons Department, they have always been helpful. At the beginning, it was quite challenging for me to understand the whole DBS procedure but through the Aarons Department's continuous guidance, it became easier and easier for me to understand and work through it. They always call to ensure that you are doing the right thing and are always ready to help if you make a mistake. When you make a mistake, they always show you exactly where your mistake was and how to fix it. They are extremely helpful!"
