What are the proposed changes?
From 2018, we will no longer directly manage DBS checks. These will be managed by an external provider who will process your DBS application on our behalf.
You will be required to pay the DBS fee (currently £44) and an administration charge for this service.
If you register with the DBS Update Service when you apply for your DBS check, a transitional arrangement will apply which will effectively fund the £13 subscription to the DBS Update Service for the first year.
The changes will bring us in line with other UK regulators.
