DBS Update Service – time extended to subscribe with certificate


The DBS have responded to the requests of users and as a result have extended the window for joining their update service upon receipt of your certificate from 14 days to 19 days.

The update service, which for a small annual subscription allows applicants to have their DBS certificate kept up-to-date and take it with them from role to role (with certain criteria), enables employers to use an individual’s current DBS certificate to carry out a free, instant online check.

Some applicants and organisations had stated that they would like to use the update service but they missed the opportunity to join by not requesting it during the application process, and finding that the original 14 day window was too short. As a result of feedback on the process, applicants now have five more days to join the update service once individuals have received their certificate.
