CSSIW proposes changes to DBS checks

The way you apply for a DBS check is changing...

The proposal is that from 2018, CSSIW will no longer directly manage DBS checks – these will be managed by an external provider. A DBS fee (currently £44) and an administration charge will be payable for this service.

If you register with the DBS Update Service when you apply for your DBS check, a transitional arrangement will apply which will effectively fund the £13 subscription to the DBS Update Service for the first year.
