What is it?

The Update Service was introduced by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) in June 2013. This service ensures your DBS certificate will be kept up to date. You can take it with you from role to role (within the same workforce) where the same type and level of check is required.

The main purpose of the Update Service is so that an employer can use your current DBS certificate to carry out a free, instant online check (with your consent) to see if any new information has come to light since its issue. If there is no change in status, the employer can accept the certificate instead of undertaking a new DBS application.

Benefits of the Update Service

Not only will it save the waiting time for a DBS to be processed to start a role, for agency staff who will need a DBS issued yearly, being subscribed to the Update Service will be extremely beneficial. This is because you will not need to spend time applying for a new DBS every year and waiting for it to be processed.

This is also the case for when a locum is registered with several agencies. Usually you need a DBS issued by that agency but if you are subscribed to the Update Service, you should be able to use that DBS with different agencies.

How to apply

You will be able to subscribe to the Update Service for an annual fee of £13. This is entirely voluntary and you would not be obliged to sign up.

If you have subscribed to the Update Service then we will be able to go online, with your consent and carry out a free, instant check to find out if the information released on the DBS certificate is current and up to date.

If you would like to register for the Update Service, you will now be able to do this on receipt of your certificate from the DBS. You can register for the Update Service at

Please note, you have only 19 days from the issue date of your certificate to register for the Update Service. If you have had a DBS issued within 19 days or are due to have one processed, please consider subscribing.
