I have lost my Disclosure Document. Can I get another copy?
February 13th, 2013 by Jonathan Bazely
In short, no. If you have received your Certificate and then lost it, you can not obtain a replacement. The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS formerly CRB) will re-print a Disclosure Certificate if the original was lost in the post en-route to you and was never received. This must be reported within 90 days of the issue date. Under the current DBS system there is only one paper copy of the Disclosure Certificate that is issued direct to the applicant. We recommend that you keep this safe at all times as the only copy available for review.
If you have not received your original DBS Certificate you can request a re-print by sending an email to DBSReprints@dbs.gsi.gov.uk including your name, date of birth, place of birth, address (with post code) and the date the Certificate was issued.
Disclosure Scotland or PVG applications
Disclosure Scotland will reprint a Basic or Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Certificate within 17 days. A reprint can only be requested if the original disclosure Certificate was never received. Disclosure Scotland can be contacted on 03000 200 040. We strongly recommend that you keep your Scheme Record secure to prevent the need for a full application for any future role.
Access Northern Ireland applications
AccessNI will reprint a lost or damaged certificate if this is requested within 90 days of the original issue date. To contact AccessNI call 03002 007 888.
