DBS UPDATE SERVICE
ENHANCING SAFEGUARDING LIKE NEVER BEFORE
This DBS Update Service is a crucial service for employers and individuals as it help keeps criminal records constantly up to date, meaning that all changes to criminal records are logged instantly, leaving employers less vulnerable to any changes in criminal history and saving candidates the stress (and time) of applying for new DBS checks.
The system works by performing regular checks on a person’s criminal history without the need to undertake further criminal checks. We can check an individual’s criminal disclosure certificate every week, month or quarter to ensure there has been no change to their criminal record and provide real time notifications and alerts if an individual’s criminal record has changed. This vital service has proved invaluable to many customers and is proving to be a unique tool in proactively managing, safeguarding and protecting the reputation of our clients.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

WHAT’S THE RISK?
By not registering to the service you will not be informed of any changes to a person’s criminal history.

Failing to register increases your exposure to unsuitable employees and volunteers. Within the database, the administrator has the ability to track and view the audit trails attached to all individuals registered on the Update Service.
