DBS have now changed their paper forms
February 21st, 2013 by Matt Tuckey
Since the name change of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) in December 2012, to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), the DBS have been changing their contact details and stationery to the new terminology, rolling out the changes in phases.
Please note that from the 28th February 2013 the DBS will no longer be able to accept old Disclosure application forms which hold the CRB name in the top left of the front page.
At DDC we print our own forms and transfer the information on to an electronic Disclosure Application Form (eDAF), for submission to the DBS using the eBulk service. This speeds up the process and returns the results much more quickly than the conventional paper application process. This also means if you use the DDC forms you do not need to worry about the DBS form changes.
We can offer an electronic submission system to our Clients which allows the information to be submitted to us electronically. If you would be interested in our online submission tool you can contact one of the team on 0845 644 3298.
Very few of our clients still use the official DBS paper forms, preferring our own simpler forms, to those printed by the DBS. If you do have official CRB/DBS forms, please check if they are the old CRB logo forms, and require any new forms or know of applicants in receipt of the old forms, please get in touch and we can arrange for the re-issue of new forms.
Please note that you can differentiate the DDC forms from the DBS forms by looking for the DDC logo in the top left corner of the form.
If you have any further questions you can contact one of the team on 0845 644 3298.
