News – The CRB has become the DBS

On 1 December 2012, the CRB was merged with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

The service and processes currently provided by the CRB are not changing as a result of the merger.  They will, however, be going through a rebranding exercise. As part of the rebranding, they will introduce the new DBS logo. There will be small changes to the application form and certificate, and some of the language that they use. The website guidance will also look a little different.

To find out more about the transition to DBS and review a sample DBS application form visit Home Office: CRB is Changing.
