Monitor your DBS Application As It Progresses Through Each Stage

Make Sure You're Kept In The Loop!

The inbuilt DBS tracking service is a great way to keep an eye on all your DBS application forms, so you know what is going on.

Once the DBS have received the application, our system constantly connects to the DBS service and lets you know every time the stage or status of an application changes.

Email Updates

Our system sends you email updates and notifications and even allows you to see the result (if the certificate is clear) online. Although we give you this information to help you, you will still also need to see the applicant's original certificate.

The DBS tracker allows you to track multiple forms at once which saves time.

  • Allows you to keep your boss updated.
  • Allows you to keep your applicants updated.
  • Lets you know when the certificate has been dispatched.

The DBS Checking Process Explained

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a DBS checking process? We'll tell you!

Step 1: The Application Form is Received

When the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) receive an application, they will check for any errors or omissions. If any are found, it is returned to our Countersignatories, however, as we put the upmost care into our work, this is very unlikely to happen. The application may also be returned if the DBS has any questions or clarifications regarding the application form.

Step 2: Police National Computer (PNC) Search

The application form's data is compared against details held on the Police National Computer, identifying possible matches.

Step 3: Children's and Adult's Barred List Search (If Needed)

Should it be needed for the applicants' role, the Children's and Adult's barred listed will be searched.

Step 4: (Only for Enhanced Checks) Local Police Record Check

At this stage, the application is sent securely to any relevant local police forces checking against their local records.

Stage 5: The DBS Certificate is Printed!

Once all the information has been found and checked, the DBS certificate is ready. All the information that is disclosed is printed under highly secure procedures and then posted to the applicant. Only the applicant can reveal the information contained on the DBS certificate to the employer.
