What is the annual update service?

When applying for a DBS check you can also join the annual update service, this gives you portability on your disclosure certificate so that you can use it with different companies as long as you are in the same line of work.

It also means that you will not have to apply for a DBS check again as there will be an up to date copy available online that employers can check.

This costs £13 per year and you can register yourself on the update service up to 28 days after the date your certificate has been completed, if you wish to join this service please let us know and we will send you a list of instructions on how to register yourself.

Please note you must register yourself on the annual update service, it is not permitted for a third party such as an umbrella body or an employer to manage your subscription on your behalf.
