Updated DBS disclosure application form
Information for registered organisations about a change to the DBS disclosure application form.
We have already told you about the changes to legislation which resulted in the filtering of old and minor convictions.
On the 12 March 2014 the disclosure application form was amended to reflect this change and question e55 now asks:
‘Do you have any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings which would not be filtered in line with current guidance?’
You won’t need to order new application forms because we are arranging this for you through a stock replacement exercise. We’ll also send you more information via post and email
All applications should be submitted on the new, revised disclosure application form once you receive them. This form can easily be identified as the form reference number at the top right-hand side begins with F01. The form reference number on the old forms begins with F00.
In the meantime, please use your current stock of application forms until the new forms arrive.
