    Hi,

    I am having a dbs done and I believe you can then register it on a database for all employers to see it .

    Has anyone had this done and can they explain how it all works.

    thanks

    yes you can. i also had mine done, and it came back clean. then you need to register it with the dbs online tracking service, and you have to pay £13 per year for this grace. Good luck!

    When you initially apply for a DBS check, you need to do this through an employer (or volunteer organisation). They give you the details of how to apply. You can't just decide that you want one and apply on your own.

    Once you've completed the DBS check you'll get a paper certificate through the post. This must be kept safe. You can then register with this website using details from that certificate. You must do so within 19 calendar days of the date of issue which is printed on the certificate. There is a charge for this of £13 per year.

    Some companies won't use this and still want you to do a DBS check through them. I know Scouts won't accept a previous DBS check.

    I was given the impression that you can apply for the basic check on your own, it is just the enhanced one that you need to do with an employers?

    Thanks.

    So on the update service will prospective employers see my personal details that I put on the application form for a enhanced dbs?

    If you're asked for a "DBS check" then that refers to the one that only employers can do. You can apply for a basic disclosure, but this is basically a money making scam - employers are very unlikely to accept it, and you obviously already know if you have any convictions.

    i don't have any convictions, but because of a couple of incidents which happened in hospital, i thought i had a caution or two. but the check came back clean, please believe me?!?
