How do we complete DBS Checks?

Temporary changes to ID checking guidelines have being made as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

DBS checks can now be carried out remotely.

Use a video link to see the required documents and ask for these to be scanned and sent to you by email.

Put a note in your Single Central Register to say you have done this and refer to the above guidance of 19 March 2020 in case the RI at your next inspection is not up-to-date.

See the original documents when the person presents for work after the crisis ends, again noting this in the Single Central Register.
