New Basic Criminal Record Disclosure Application Process

With immediate effect if your applicant is residing in England or Wales then their Basic Disclosure application will be processed through the Disclosure and Barring Service. If your applicant lives in Scotland then we will continue to process their Basic Disclosure application through Disclosure Scotland.

Coupled with this change of processing bureau is a new document identification process for the applications processed through the Disclosure and Barring Service.

What does this mean in practice? Well, at your usual application stage you will need to collect and inspect original documents from your applicant. The number and type will depend on what can be produced and you must follow the path set out below.
