If you have not already established if an enhanced DBS check can lawfully be requested, please do so before ordering as refunds will not be given for roles which transpire to be ineligible (this does not affect your statutory rights). For help establishing eligibility, you can visit the DBS Guide to Eligibility or contact us. Please also take the time to familiarise yourself with changes in the DBS.

To avoid processing delays, please provide the name of the recruiting organisation at the point of order. Individuals and the self-employed cannot DBS check themselves.
