The latest issue of DBS Disclosure News includes an update of the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Update service which was launched a year ago. The update service allows employees to carry out free, instant online status checks on an individual’s DBS certificate. It allows individuals (for a small annual fee) to have their DBS certificate kept up-to-date and take it with them from role to role, within the same workforce, where the same type and level of check is required.
The government has a range of information and guidance documents, about the update service, available on their website www.gov.uk
