Standard DBS checks show details of both a candidate’s unspent and spent convictions as well as any cautions received. As the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 protects applicants from having to disclose details of spent cautions and convictions unless they are applying for a position that is exempt from the act, we recommend that employers wishing to obtain a Standard DBS for an applicant ensure that the position applied for allows for a Standard DBS – such positions include those involved in the legal system, licencing, health services, police, prisons or positions with financial control.

You can process Standard DBS checks in three different ways.
1. Complete our online CRB application form below and attach your supporting documents online.
2. Complete our online CRB application form below and skip the sections asking you to supply your supporting documents and send copies by post or fax.
3. If you prefer to complete a paper application form please click on our Standard application form to download and print our application form and send back to us with copies of your supporting documents by post or fax. If you would like us to send you an application form or require more information please email us at email@example.com or call us on 01372 279276. We also have a live chat feature available through our contact page. Phone lines and live chat are open from 9am – 5.30pm.
We are able to process Enhanced DBS applications through the DBS completely online with the e-bulk system as applicants can submit all the information required in the form below and upload copies of the required supporting documents directly into the form.
Three supporting documents are required for an application. One of these must be a document proving the applicants identification e.g Passport or Driving Licence.* The two other documents required must show the applicants current address e.g Utility Bill, Credit Card Statement, Council Tax Statement, Bank Statement etc. These documents can also be sent to us in the post but please be aware that we cannot start your application until we have received all the information.
For details on exactly what documents are acceptable you can check our ‘Required Documents’ page here.
Once full payment has been received we will submit your Standard DBS check and you will receive a payment receipt via email confirming your payment and also a reference number which you can use to track your application through the tracking page.
Once the check is complete, your DBS certificate will be sent out by post to the current address you have supplied on your application form and usually takes between 2-3 working days (the whole process is done online via our e-bulk system). Although 85% of Standard DBS checks that we process are completed in this time frame, there are several reasons why some DBS checks may take slightly longer, such as a common surname, multiple addresses, any cautions/convictions that need to be checked. Therefore we would advise you to call us to look into your application only if you have still not received your DBS certificate after ten working days.
