Our online ebulk disclosure enables employers to apply for Standard and Enhanced DBS Checks through our online application process.
Using our ebulk service for Standard or Enhanced DBS checks is simple and straightforward. It does not involve any sign up/ registration fees and the prices quoted below for Standard and Enhanced DBS checks are inclusive of all service charges and VAT. The ebulk system we use allows for DBS applications to be processed much more quickly, avoiding unnecessary delays at any point in the process. Checks are generally underway within a few hours of us receiving the application, and on average both levels of DBS checks are completed in less than five days. Due to the DBS Check process it is not possible to guarantee turnaround times, but over 80% of applications that we process are completed within five days. Maximum turnaround times are four weeks, although applications taking this long through our ebulk system are rare.
To use our ebulk service for Standard and Enhanced DBS checks, you must ensure that you are obtaining the correct level of check for your staff/applicants. Some guidance and information on the different levels of checks is available on our website. If you are likely to be processing more than ten checks through us and you would like to use paper application forms as opposed to our online application form then we offer the option of having applications sent through to you customised to contain your company details, name, logo and instructions on who at your company completed applications should be sent through to. This contact will then pass all applications through to us for processing. The alternative is to direct applicants to our online application page on our website. All you will need to do is pay for the required number of checks you need processed and then once you are given a pre-paid reference number specific to that payment you can pass that on to your staff/applicants. When applications are submitted to us containing your pre-paid reference number we will ensure that you receive both the tracking number which allows you to track the progress of the applications online as well as a notification as soon as the check is complete containing confirmation of whether the check is clear or unclear. All physical DBS certificates are sent directly to the applicant’s home address in accordance with DBS guidelines.
