DBS Update

January 18, 2018 | by Gemma Field


England Boxing would like to make members aware of the DBS update service.

The online Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) update service allows:

applicants to keep their DBS certificates up to date
England Boxing to check a DBS certificate

Applicants would need to register to use the update service.
Registration costs £13 per year (payable by debit or credit card only).

There’s no charge if they’re a volunteer.

How to register

If the applicant has not yet applied for a DBS check, they can register for the update service (https://secure.crbonline.gov.uk/crsc/apply?execution=e1s1) using their application reference number (the ‘form ref’ on your application form or E05 on the online applications). The DBS must receive the application form within 28 days.

If they’ve already applied, they can register for the update service using their DBS certificate number. They must do this within 30 days of the certificate being issued.

They can use the DBS tracking service (https://secure.crbonline.gov.uk/enquiry/enquirySearch ) to check the progress of their DBS certificate.

What they get

The applicant will be able to take their DBS certificate from one job to the next, unless:

the employer asks them to get a new certificate
they need a certificate for a different type of ‘workforce’ (for example, they have an ‘adult workforce’ certificate and need a ‘child workforce’ certificate)
they need a different level certificate (for example, they have a standard DBS certificate and need an enhanced one)

Once they’ve registered, they can use the update service to:

add or remove a certificate
give employers and England Boxing permission to check if anything’s changed on their certificate
see who’s checked if anything’s changed on their certificate
view their details
Renewing the subscription

A subscription to the update service lasts for one year.

Applicants can renew their subscription through the update service, either:

when they first register, by choosing automatic renewal
up to 30 days before the current subscription ends – but they can’t renew on the last day of their subscription
If they don’t renew their subscription before it ends, they’ll need to apply for a new DBS check and register for the update service again.

Employers and other organisations

To check a DBS certificate status online, employers and other organisations must:

be legally entitled to carry out a check
have the worker’s permission
