CRB name change to DBS

In 2012, the government made a number of changes to disclosure checks. As part of these changes, the CRB (the organisation that processes disclosure checks in England and Wales) has changed its name to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

New disclosure forms

The DBS has updated the disclosure application forms for England and Wales to include the new name and logo. They will no longer accept old forms from February 2013.

Further information

This only affects England and Wales. In Northern Ireland and Scotland disclosure checks are processed by different organisations (Access NI and Disclosure Scotland).
