From Monday 31st May, 2021, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) will no longer be able to amend an applicant’s personal information on the application form, once it has been submitted.

Enhanced DBS check applications that are submitted with omitted or incorrect information regarding Sections A, B and C will be withdrawn, and a new application will need to be submitted. If an application is withdrawn due to an omission or error in the personal information, no refunds will be given.
