Online Disclosure and Barring Service

What do we offer?

Surrey County Council is a Registered Umbrella Body with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly known as the Criminal Records Bureau). We own and operate an online DBS Service that allows us to provide online Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checking processes to other organisations and businesses, formerly known as Criminal Records Bureau checks.

Through our online DBS Umbrella Service, we also provide expert advice and information to help you and to ensure that we fully understand your organisation's unique requirements.

Why choose us?

Having been registered with the Criminal Records Bureau and now Disclosure and Barring Service since 2002, we can ensure that all your DBS checking requirements are met in a cost-effective manner.

Our online application system uses state of the art technology to speed-up all applications. The system ensures that data is entered correctly so we always deliver a 100% error-free process.

Our average return time for DBS disclosures is just five days. This is far quicker than the four-six weeks average for paper DBS forms. Some have been returned in as little as 24 hours!

Our fast, reliable and secure online DBS Service offers:

  • An easy to follow online application process.
  • An employer website that lets you manage your applications, view your own reports and track progress of your DBS applications in real time.
  • Downloadable DBS Disclosure results.
  • Free advice and support from our Helpdesk Team.

To register your interest in using our online DBS Service, please provide your details and contact information on our short enquiry form and one of the team will be in touch.
