How did you hear about CBS?



We are the market leader in providing full, detailed background checks from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Our streamlined system makes it easier and faster than ever before for your organisation to access a standard criminal disclosure on current and future employees. Our entire screening process can be carried out online, eliminating time, cost and resources – giving you up-to-date screening methods in a matter of days.

What is a Standard Disclosure?

A Standard DBS check, or disclosure, details all criminal history; cautions, warnings, reprimands and convictions held on the Police National Computer, with the exception of the DBS filtering rule. This type of disclosure can only be applied for by an organisation.

When Do You Need a Standard Disclosure?

Standard DBS checks are for people entering certain professions, such as members of the financial or legal industries. If you aren’t sure whether you require a standard check, we can advise you on this.


When you work with CBS, you won’t have to sign any long-term contracts or pay monthly rates – you simply pay for what you use. We charge no registration or set up fees – our services are simply accessed on a Pay-As-You-Use basis.

We do have a small administration cost for processing disclosures. These are subject to VAT and range from £6 – £13 according to volume, in addition to the DBS fees:

Standard Disclosure: £26.00
DBS Disclosures for volunteers: £0.00

We are also able to continually check an individual’s criminal history with our Update Service. This allows an employer to enhance safeguarding procedures and also allows the applicant to use their criminal certificate for other positions without the need to renew every three years.

DBS checks provided at the standard level of disclosure are protected by legislation and only those individuals who meet certain criteria are able to undertake this level of check.

For those working closely and frequently with the most vulnerable in our society, such as children or vulnerable adults, it is likely the enhanced level disclosure will be more suitable. While standard levels checks are supported by legislation for positions that involve contact with the vulnerable, these are mainly used for professional or regulated bodies.

It was revealed earlier this year that up to 20,000 people have slipped through the net and begun working with children and vulnerable adults without going through full security checks.
