Changes at the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) mean that any DBS checks they receive which have errors or missing information will no longer be bounced back to be corrected but will be cancelled and the fee lost.
Where this happens applicants will have to start again with a new form and pay again. Please make sure applications are correctly completed with no gaps in the address history and all questions answered. Find out more information on DBS checks here.
Please note that any delay in providing an Enhanced DBS certificate may result in a delay in your application being granted.
