DBS Checks by Due Diligence Checking

Welcome to Due Diligence Checking Ltd. We are a registered commercial Umbrella Body for the Disclosure and Barring Service and Disclosure Scotland. We offer DBS checks (Disclosures) for organisations and employers. We currently work, processing DBS checks, on behalf of over 6000 client organisations. Our clients come from the Government, education and healthcare sectors, voluntary organisations and businesses of all sizes.

We process between 3500 and 4000 applications per month for the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and Disclosure Scotland. DBS checks at the Standard and Enhanced level can be sought for specified roles that are exempted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974). These include roles where the individual will be working with children and/or vulnerable adults; or unrestricted access to premises where children or vulnerable adults are present such as schools or care homes.

Other eligible roles for DBS checks may include legal positions, security industry operatives or FSA regulated financial roles that include giving investment advice.

Online e-Bulk DBS checks

We are a fully accredited Registered Umbrella Body, which means the DBS permit us to submit criminal record check applications on behalf of other organisations. As we submit over 30,000 checks per year, we are also able to make use of the DBS e-Bulk service. This enables us to submit data to the DBS electronically via a secure online connection. This allows us to collect data using our custom-built online application system and submit the data to the DBS without delay. This means that your recruitment and checking processes benefit from the fastest possible service.

ID Checks for DBS Route 2

Although our online criminal record check processes is at the heart of our business, we also aim to provide a comprehensive identity validation service for our clients. We have partnered with Experian to allow us to provide 3rd party identity checks for applicants who require this service.

DDC also offer this service to Registered Bodies independently. Even if your check is not being carried out by DDC, we can provide rapid and secure identity validation, using government-approved databases.

We take pride in our customer service and we are constantly striving to improve our processes. We have been assessed against the ISO 9001 standard and our internal quality management systems are fully certified.

We also take the security of you data extremely seriously, which is why we have chosen to adopt the ISO27001 information security management system. All of our systems are owned and developed by DDC, and we use industry standard technology and encryption.

Finally, we know that keeping costs down is a major consideration for all business. For this reason, we are constantly optimising our processes to ensure the value they provide is the best in the industry.
