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.
