Apply for a Standard DBS Check
Standard DBS Check
Please read the conditions of this application at the bottom of this page
Conditions of application:
As part of the standard DBS check process the employer is required to check the candidate’s original ID documents. (The ID verifier cannot be a relative or someone in your household, even if they are your employer. It will need to be someone else from the organisation or the contractor of the services which requires the DBS check to be done). We will contact the employer to verify the candidate’s ID documents. If we are unable to get hold of the employer or the employer does not get back to us within one week, we will cancel the application and charge a £12 admin fee. We will send the candidate a secure login to enter all their personal details and the employer/ID verifier login details to verify the candidate’s ID.
Please ensure you are applying for the correct level of check. Guidelines can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/dbs-eligibility-guidance
All cancelled applications are subject to a £12 administration cost*.
