Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)

The Disclosure and Barring Service helps employers make safer recruitment decisions by processing and issuing DBS checks for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. DBS also maintains the adults’ and children’s barred lists and makes considered decisions as to whether an individual should be included on one or both of these lists and barred from engaging in regulated activity.
