A note about single DBS applications

Current legislation does not allow individuals to obtain a DBS Check on themselves.   The law also does not allow a DBS Check to be obtained for a personal reason; such as to check what is on your criminal record.  

Only "Regulated Activity Providers" can obtain a DBS check.

The service we provide via this website enables small businesses to obtain 1 x DBS check only.  

Many other Registered DBS Umbrella Bodies require a minimum number of DBS applications, however we recognize that small businesses may not necessarily need more than one DBS check and so we can provide this for you.  

We provide an online DBS application system that is simple, secure and efficient DBS checking service.  

Please note:  All 3 points of the Eligibility Criteria below must be met:
