A DBS check is what used to be called a CRB check up until December 2012 when the Criminal Records Bureau became the Disclosure and Barring Service. Find out more about the change from CRB to DBS on the Home Office website.
DBS checks are used to vet potential employees by finding out if they have a criminal record or are on a barred list, which prevents them from working from children and/or vulnerable adults.
If you need to carry out a DBS check, you can fill out a paper or online form similar to a CRB application form or you can use our online service called e-Bulk.
If you would like more information on our screening services covering employees or advice on which one is right for your organisation please contact us or call us on
